POTTSTOWN PA – Check off one more box on the task list for reconstruction of Pottsgrove High School. It’s newly renovated library is now ready for occupancy.
Last Wednesday (Oct. 14, 2015) was move-in day for high school Library Aide Denise Hegedus (at top left) and Library Media Specialist Danielle Small, as others rolled in carts full of books and equipment (top right) that for a time seemed to fill every square inch of its floor space with organized chaos.
Pottsgrove construction supervisor Jim Hanna of D’Huy Engineering predicted almost three weeks ago the arrival of the happy moment, when he told the Pottsgrove Board of School Directors both the library and cafeteria in the Kauffman Road building would be turned over to the district by mid-month.
The library was sufficiently shaped up, according to the most recent newsletter from Principal Dr. Bill Ziegler, that members of high school Parents-Teachers-Students Association held their meeting there Monday night (Oct. 19).
During an Oct. 13 meeting, directors approved payments for the latest round of renovation project invoices, in amounts of $556,356 to general contractor E.R. Stuebner Construction Inc., $237,723 to electrical contractor MBR Construction Services Inc., $149,815 to mechanical contractor Frey Lutz Corp., and $22,190 to plumbing contractor Integrity Mechanical Inc.
