Yes, there are some people who are not happy, especially now with big concerns about cuts the city is going to have to make to balance its 2010-12 budget.
And then there are others who are getting pumped up for the library's July 17 opening day and what could be the biggest party this town has seen in a while.
Here are photos of the library, as it nears completion, on April 22. Thanks to the reader who shared these with us.
