A presentation by @buildwithmarker at Hyatt Middle School led to a student-requested tour of the construction site of @DelawareLibrary‘s Liberty Branch Library. We were happy to accompany the group on the tour and loved to see students so interested in construction and design! pic.twitter.com/zBX36h9ORL
