Menuiserie Pouliot was hired to do selective demolition work, which took place in August and September. This work revealed many surprises hidden beneath the planks, including some intriguing bones! The archaeologists have been called in and are on the case. The pink carpeting was removed from the library floor, exposing a beautiful red pine floor that will enhance the reading room’s warmth with a little sanding and varnishing. The work completed this summer gives us important information about the building’s condition, enabling the architects (Boudreau-Fortier-Ramoisy-Tremblay) and engineers (CIMA+, Génivar) to better plan their interventions on the site.
