Clayton Renovation

Oops, I missed our story on Clayton.  It's a real fluff piece with a couple shots of the new interior.  No mention of what the renovation means for the library.  sigh

Clayton Renovation Hilighted in Chron

There's an nice writeup in The Houston Chronicle this morning about the renovation of the original William L. Clayton home.  The Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research is located on the grounds of the home.

The article wraps the hard news of the renovation around a feature of Maurice Allen, from Detroit, who flys in to use the library (he works for Continental).  If you just read the rss feed, you'll miss the 3:33 video clip.  Mr. Allen relates some of the research he's done at Clayton.  There is also a photogallery of the renovated building and grounds.

The article talks about the repurposing of the main building to hold some of the stacks, and as a satellite site to view LDS microfilms.  I didn't know that was planned.
