By April 13, 2012, the back wing was empty and almost ready to come down. Workers on the scaffolding were removing and stacking the exterior bricks.

The old stack wing of the 1902 library building is empty and ready for deconstruction. Scaffolding on the Essex Street side allows workers to remove and stack the exterior bricks.  I assume they will be reused, given the care with which they are being removed.

The demolition of this wing is (as of now) scheduled to begin April 23.
