TIVERTON, R.I. (AP) - Tiverton’s new library is slowly taking shape.

Construction workers on Monday fit the last steel I-beam into place, a milestone celebrated by library trustees.

Trustee Leon Hoyer tells The Herald News (https://bit.ly/1p9fcGf ) the ceremony marked the completion of the steel frame that forms the building’s skeleton.

With the steel work completed, the next step is to install conduits to carry electric and computer wires as well as the plumbing.

After crews pour the concrete that will serve as the base of the floor, workers will build the wooden walls around the steel frame.

The granite boulders cleared from the site off Bulgarmarsh Road will be used to build a retaining wall, or crushed to provide a base for roads and parking lots.

The goal is to open next spring.
