And now… drumroll please… it has taken off! Literally!! The plane is now on view for all to see in the Library atrium. Check out the view from the first floor, or take a peek from the Children’s Room windows for a bird’s eye perspective.
An average of six builders met 93 times from November 2016 to June 2017 to complete this project in 1,405 hours! We could not have done it without the help of all of our community builders. Thank you all!
Thank you Avon Department of Public Works for climbing the height to help us hang the plane.
And thank you to the Avon Education Foundation for generously funding this community project.
