Beloved British author P.D. James died on Thursday at the age of 94. She delighted her readers with her cerebral mysteries featuring detective Adam Dalgliesh and her life was as interesting as her novels. After her husband was injured in WWII she was forced to support her family. She worked for the National Health Service and didn't publish her first novel until she was 42. After the death of her husband a job in the Department of Home Affairs sustained her and gave her procedural knowledge she would use in her novels.
The exterior library sign at the north end of the Central Library was recently removed. The demolition of the loading dock was completed and the removal of the river rock panels continues on the exterior. Inside, the demolition of stairs and the elevators will make way for new ones soon.
