New Pine Bluff Main Library Signed Beam Placement
New Pine Bluff Main Library Topping Out Ceremony & Beam Signing
On Tuesday, June 11th, East Harding Construction along with local officials attended the “Topping Out Ceremony” at the site of the new Pine Bluff/Jefferson County Library.
Speakers included Pine Bluff Mayor Shirley Washington, Pine Bluff/Jefferson County Library Director Bobbie Morgan, East Harding Construction President & CEO Van Tilbury, and two of the library’s board members.
A commemorative beam signing was the highlight of the ceremony allowing attendees to sign their names into Pine Bluff history & become a permanent part of new Pine Bluff Main Library.
The signed beam was raised to the top of the structure and put in place as the crowd watched.
With the steel erection complete, we look forward to the next phase of this incredible project.

New Pine Bluff Main Library Topping Ceremony Will Mark Project Milestone
The entire community is invited to come together Tuesday, June 11th at 5:30 pm to witness the traditional celebration to mark the final beam being placed atop the new library structure located downtown in Pine Bluff at 6th and Main Street.
As part of the ceremony, the Library Board of Directors will be signing a structural steel beam before it is hoisted into place and secured atop the building’s frame to celebrate progress on the library’s construction.
When completed, the two-story facility will be housing books and periodical collections, multi-purpose meeting rooms, offices, archives, genealogy department, maker spaces, computer commons, open lab tutoring area, recording studios, reading/study areas, museum, a teen loft, and much more.
We are all excited to see how this project will look when it is completed!
