New Northeast Branch Library: 3000 Huron Parkway
Top: A team of draft horses pull dead ash logs from the construction site of the new branch. The purpose of the horses' work was threefold: they had much less of an impact on the forest floor than machinery; the wood will be used as building material and support beams in the new branch library; and the visible support beams will serve as valuable environmental lesson on the devastation of ash trees by the Emerald Ash Borer.
Center: Architect's rendering of the new Northeast Branch.
Bottom: Construction site showing the foundation for the building in place. June, 2007.
