Comparison between 2009 - July 2013 state of the Kytherian Municipal Council Library courtyard

The view over the total courtyard.

The transformation was remarkable. The Library has now become an extremely desirable place to visit and work in, as well as to enjoy various recreational and cultural activities.

Carpark for the Kytherian Municipal Library, on the adjoining block of land

The vegetation from the adjoining block, that had overgrown this wall was removed, at the same time as the iron fence top. One of the advantages of this action, was that the owner of the neighbouring block, Panayotis Defterevos (Panayotis Rent A Car), upon seeing his property cleared and levelled out, very kindly offered the very sizable adjoing space as a car park, to cater for events that will be staged at the Library in the future.

The carpark is about 5x larger than you see in ...

This is the entry and passageway into the large storage area in the Kytherian Municipal Library

It opens up into a much larger space in the farthest / northern part of the room.

A storage room (apothiki) has been constructed on the eastern (Ayios Elias) side of the Library in 2009. It has a sloping roof down to the exterior fence wall. This is the view from the exterior of the storage room. This is the entry passageway into the large storage room.

The storage room is quite spacious. It is a very necessary area of the building, as more and more persons are donating ...

Rusted and dangerous upper part of the eastern wall (left hand side)

....in situ before the August 2013 renovation of Kytherian Municipal Library. The ironwork on the wall has since been removed, and been replaced by solid stone work, in keeping with the other stonework that has been incorporated in other parts of the Library.

The newly renovated Kytherian Municapal Library

Blessed by rays of sunshine.

It conjures up memories of Axiom's song "Little ray of sunshine".

A little ray of sunshine has come into the Kytherian world,
A little ray of sunshine in the shape of a Library......

It will make you feel good,
It will make you feel that it's all worthwhile,
Only by her smile, only by her smile, only by her smile ...

Talkin' 'bout my little ray of sunshine,
My little ray of sunshine,

Archive and storage room, the Kytherian Municpal Library.

It lies on the left hand side as you first enter the Library. In October 2013 a door was placed in this room. The room also contains a steel shelving unit, to house more valuable books, files and archives. This year the precious Koksma archive was placed there.

The Childrens Library is the first narrow room to the left as you enter the Kytherian Municipal Library

It contains many of the books that formed the Children's Library at Livathi, which had to unfortunately close down. This childrens library has been resurrected within the Kytherian Municipal Library. Children borrow books form this library consistently. They also attend in sizable school groups and undertake various activities. In this photograph the library has been set up for "chess classes".

The main room in the Kytherian Muncipal Library

The shelving depicted was provided by Kytherians from California. The full story of how Cynthia Cavalenes helped organise a container of shelving to be delivered from the Alhambra Municipality to Kythera is related below in this entry. The main library room is spacious, and houses many significant books.

Rusted and dangerous upper part of the eastern Kytherian Municipal Library wall were removed

Although the removal of this component of the wall was not included in either the 'scope of works' or the budget for the August 2013 refurbishment and renovation, it was considered prudent to remove the 'iron' depicted in this photograph.

Superb end product following the refurbishment of the rear courtyard of the Kytherian Municipal Library

View from the back door to the arch at the end of the courtyard. The "pencil pine" has been retained. The scene has a 'renaissance' quality.

Laying the "coritzo'' tiles in the courtyard of the Kytherian Municipal Library 3

Summer of 2013.

"Coritzo" was chosen instead of "haliki" (loose stones), because the tiles will last far longer without maintenance (many decades), and would supply a superior finish, which is much easier to walk on.

The back courtyard was transformed from a wasteland into a beautiful and highly functional space for many other activities, including evening cultural events and cinema screenings.
