PTA Carnival Chest Drive
Will Present Starts Late,
Full Program Ends Nov. 1st
Crews working for the City of
Beaverton, at direction of the
city council, began work on a
concrete floor for the new li
brary quarters, next to the fire
station, Monday morning
Although it will be "some little
time”, officials warn, before the
library finally occupies its long
awaited home, immediate pros
pect is to use the space for book-
storage, once the floor is ready.
Completed, the library room
will have dimensions of 18’ by
47’. Mrs. William Grauer, librar
ian, declares that, with
room, she will be able to set
aside reading space as well as
expand library facilities to in
clude many current magazines.
