Library renovation update - May 2014

The floor tiles in the library were removed, and the metal beams that had divided the western end into office spaces were taken down. The metal barrier along the balcony level was removed. Egyptian archaeologists came to review the work, and to plan the next step. The concrete slab over the Justinian wall was removed, and bricks were added to the two arches in the reading room to reduce their dimensions.
