The library approached BARN about a footbridge on its grounds sorely in need of repair or replacement (pictured showing damaged boards). Dick Culp, Wood Studio community service coordinator, and David Grant determined the old bridge was too far gone to be repaired.
So, Dick and David built a new footbridge (see photo above).
Library Board Director Kip Bankart had this to say about the new bridge: “Thank you for your very generous contribution of expertise, time, and effort. Your willingness to volunteer ‘for the greater good’ is a clear demonstration of what makes our island so special.”
The second project came to BARN from Mel Carson. Nineteen years ago, an auto accident in front of his home on Tolo Road took the life of an island teen named Sarah.
