It is hard to believe the Miller Library is 23 years old. The building has held up remarkably well given its exposure to the salt water laden winds.
Work was completed yesterday replacing all of the library's copper gutters. The roof on the cupola was also replaced in response to a small leak. The humpback whale weathervane installed back in 1999 had lost its fins as the result of sea gulls perching on it, so a new one was built and installed.
Thanks go to Jon Flores, the Zone Projects Manager for Hopkins Marine Station.
We had good timing since they are forecasting five days of rain starting this morning.
