Refinshing the Letters at the Sonoma County Library

Outside the downtown Central branch of the Sonoma County Library, one of the maintenance crew was refinishing the large metal letters. He peeled off thin sheets of silver foil with adhesive backing like a sticker, carefully applied the sheet to the letter, smoothed out bubbles with a scraper tool, then cut the outline of the letter with an X-acto knife.

This was the thrifty alternative to taking the letters down sending them off to be refinished, he said.

Who knew?
