Our new building project was recently the recipient of all or most of the interior doors we will need for the new building. Our construction manager estimates this will save us close to $8,000.
The doors come from an insurance office in Farmington that is being remodeled. The doors are commercial quality, 7.5 ft tall, very heavy with a cherry finish. All of the hardware and the frames for all but the double doors were also donated. The frames are solid cherry. It’s envisioned that the double doors will open to our multi-purpose room. Each door and it’s associated hardware and frame(s) were numbered and cataloged for the future.
Volunteers traveled to Farmington and disassembled these doors and brought them back to Addison Township where they were put into donated climate-controlled storage until they’re needed.
Thank you volunteers!
Volunteers from the Addison Township Library recently traveled to Jenison MI to claim some donated shelving from the Georgetown Township Public Library located in Jenison MI. Georgetown Library recently completed the construction of their new library and this shelving was redundant.
Our volunteers were greeted with help and support from several local Boy Scout Troops who were contacted ahead of time by our local volunteers. They were asked for assistance disassembling the shelving and loading it into the rental truck. The Scouts earned service time. Pizza and pop was served to all the volunteers.
All the helping hands made quick work of the disassembly and loading. In less than 4 hours several hundred feet of 7 foot, 5 foot, and 4 foot tall double shelving units were disassembled and loaded into the truck for travel back to Addison Township for storage at “Stor Your Stuf” in Lakeville. Additionally, there was also some media shelving, rolling media cabinets and maps storage file cabinets donated to our Library. Volunteers on this end helped unload the truck and load the shelving into the storage unit.
