A crane lifted the Pratt & Whitney J57 turbojet display engine from the King Museum on the second floor of the Raymond Library on Tuesday, Nov. 25.  The engine will be featured in a display case in the new children’s area on the ground floor. 

“Pratt & Whitney is very generously assisting with the move of our engines, their restoration and storage during our renovation,” said library director Susan Hansen. A groundbreaking ceremony for renovations at the Raymond Library was held on Oct. 31. Renovations are expected to take 14 months.
