Crews are installing fixtures and furniture for the new children's library, which will be ready by the end of the month.
Waynesboro library director Zahir Mahmoud said, "It's just amazing the change that you see. It's been quite some time now that we have been waiting. It's an exciting day for us and for our staff. I think the patrons will like it and they will be excited."
