Spring '10 Construction Preparations

While the region has been blanketed in cold and snowy weather the project team has been busy preparing for this spring and summer's work to begin. Construction on the igherm is slated to restart April 1. First, the team of local craftsmen will finish the martoub, protective lime plaster coating, on the exterior of the building. Next, with funding from the French Association Amis de Amezray, they will completely restore the igherm's roofs and rebuild the six towers' historic ornamentation. This will complete the exterior renovation of the igherm. If time allows before the heat of summer sets in, they will begin the renovation of the interior in preparation for the book stacks and also the renovation of the community room to house the computers donated by The Nobelity Foundation.

The local association, Amezray SMNID, has sent in a request to the Moroccan National Library for books. At the end of April Cloe Medina Erickson will bring a group of donors to visit the project and see the impact of their dollars first hand. And in May and June a group of university students will study with Erickson and work on the igherm.
