2nd Floor Painting Project

September 07 at 9:30 am- 3 pm
By: Wayne County Public Library
The baseboard, archways, and windowsills could all use a healthy dose of cleaning and paint. Not sure this project could be completed in a day and it would require areas of the library to be closed off as the team moved through the second floor. It would brighten up the area and make the building a cleaner/ happier place to be.
