The effort to give the library at Blanche Pope Elementary School a complete makeover received a lot of help from the community. More than 150 people from various Hawaii companies have donated their time and talent to transform the Waimanalo school library, which was selected by Target Corporation, in partnership with The Heart of America Foundation, for the fully paid renovation work. An unveiling ceremony was held today at the school, as the library was unveiled to students, faculty, parents and community members.
Among those doing the heavy lifting was dck pacific construction, LLC, a dck worldwide company. Project Manager William Maguire said about 25 dck pacific employees worked on demolishing the existing flooring; installed bookshelves, desks, partitions and furniture; and hung various wall treatments including tack boards, inspirational signage, picture frames and plaques.
