"I'm doing a paper on whether conditions in the world are getting better or worse."

The main room of the temporary library is, when it is not set up as a library, a basketball court. So it was inevitable: a man came in, just before closing, carrying a basketball. We were sorry to have to confirm what he could already see: no basketball games here this year.

Live Library Contruction Webcam

Library Construction is Underway!
Now you can watch the library construction on a live webcam.
It is a Pan-Tilt-Zoom or PTZ camera. The user can control the camera's view. Camera control is limited to 30 seconds per visitor. If someone has control of the camera you will be looking at what they are looking at or at the last angle viewed. The camera needs to have an Active-x program installed to run the PTZ functions. The viewer will receive a download/install notice just above the web page . There are controls for ‘Panning’ left or right, 'Zooming' for getting in close or 'Tilting' up or down. If you are not sure what the camera is looking at then click on the middle of the panning, low zoom and ¾ of the way up the tilt control.
