Completion nears

Workers with Flooring Systems, Inc., of St. Louis, were finishing up installing carpet squares Monday in colorful patterns for the new Scenic Regional Library branch in Owensville.  The new 6,800-square foot library is expected to open Wednesday, May 23. Friends of the Owensville Library will have a chance to take a 30-minute tour of the facility with Steve Campbell, executive director of the library system, from 7 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, May 21. Cost to join the Friends group is $10 a year and anyone who registers in person or online by tomorrow (Thursday) can join the group on May 21 for the private tour before the library is open to the public.
