If all goes as planned, the new children's wing of the Clark County Public Library will be finished July 25.
Patrick Culp, a construction administrator with Sherman-Carter-Barnhart, told the library board of trustees Wednesday afternoon the project is about 14 percent complete. Though bad weather has delayed the project, work is still on schedule, he said.
"Sometime next week, they'll pour the concrete slab," Culp said. The structural steel is already on site and will start going up once the slab is ready, he said.
The library is constructing an 8,000-square-foot addition to the 10-year-old facility to house a new children's wing, Library Director Julie Maruskin said. The addition would allow the existing facility to be devoted entirely to adult material and additional expansion. A conjoined project will renovate the interior, adding shelves and 30 percent more storage, she said.
