It's mid October. WHEN WILL THE LIBRARY BE READY FOR USE? Who was/is responsible for the delays in this project. Do they still have their job.
Ike Leggett is responsible for this mess. Vote for someone else in the upcoming election.
I've need a place to study and you please let us know when it will open?
Mid December 2013 is the date currently projected for substantial completion of the building with the library reopening 10-12 weeks later.
So you're saying the library cannot possibly open before spring 2014?
I'll believe it when I see it!
Comrades! Patience please, the 5 year.... make that 5 millennium plan of our dear leaders of Montgomery County take time and more importantly more money from you workers to complete.
Will the library hours be the same as they were before? I have been wanting to go to a library after work for a few hours every day, but the Olney Library is the only one that had convenient hours. All the other libraries in the county would be closed by the time I got off work and drove over to them.
The hours are now listed on the Olney branch page at:http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/library/branches/olney.html
Most of the delay in the construction of the new library was from permitting delays. Whoever scheduled the closing of the library before the construction permits were in hand made a poor decision because unless you are a commercial developer in this county with big bucks for extra legal fees, permitting always takes longer than you expect. The second problem that came up was the insolvency of the general contractor this past July. That pushed the opening from December to March. Be that as it may, I never though they would open in 2013.
When projects are awarded on the basis of low bid, then you get what you pay for....
Stop being rude and be patient "people" and be lucky you’re getting a new library! When it opens it opens... complaining about it won't make it to open any sooner. Plan on having it open for the new school year and if it opens sooner... then be happy about it.
"be lucky you're getting a new library!" ??? Our hard-earned tax dollars go to paying for our town's library (for me, that's roughly half of every dollar I earn). It ain't about luck, its about our Government using our money wisely. Olney used to have a library that worked for the community.... Been without one for two years now! This multi-year (most of it wasted) project has taken that away from us and has been a disaster. I'm voting for "other" on the next County election.
