Contractors expect to have a roof over Petersburg’s new library by sometime next month and work on the interior throughout the winter. The project got started in June and with the exterior framing well underway, the building is starting to really take shape. It was designed to be highly energy-efficient with an open ceiling and exposed beams and columns made of glued and laminated timber. Matt Lichtenstein visited the job site Friday to get an update from several people involved with the planning and construction of the project:
