Before and After #8 - The Library

Before and After...future edition!

2009



Later in 2009?

Renovations to the Portland Public Library are slated to begin later this month, and if it ends up looking anything like the rendering above, it will look great. Located in Monument Square, the new look will help add a little extra life to this busy pedestrian area year round. I look forward to the addition of a cafe in the new section and the video board that can be used to promote local events and even be used for special events like rallies in monument square.

Read Christian's take on the renovations at Rights of Way.

And while you are here, check out these other before and afters:

Before and After #1 - Custom House
Before and After #2 - Victoria Mansion
Before and After #4 - Eastland Park Hotel
Before and After #6 - Longfellow Square

Do you have any old pictures of Portland saved on your computer? I find most of mine on the Maine Memory Network site. If you have any ideas for future installments, let me (coreytempleton @ gmail.com) know and I will see what I can do!
