Off the Shelf: San Manuel Library gets spruced

Special to the Miner

No Botox was used but the facelift on the San Manuel Library looks great! 

The old turquoise and white exterior paint job has disappeared and now the library is a sleek looking grey with white trim and black accents plus a flashy bright red door.  The front of the building is unique looking with the black Magma/BHP skyline mural accented with a black frame surrounding it.  To help protect this piece of San Manuel history it was painted with clear latex which will, hopefully, keep weather damage to a minimum.  Hats off to BHP for funding this latest paint project.

Over the last three years, the library has gone through many redecorating projects: interior and exterior paint jobs, new carpeting, decorative touches, chain link fence that will keep this building in good shape for many, many years to come.  The next project, again thanks to the generosity of BHP, will be adding gates to the already existing chain link fence.

The volunteers who keep this library going would like to invite everyone in the community to drop by and view the changes and make use of the many services the library offers.
