I arrived to work @8:35a.m. I thought that I would have trouble gaining access to the staff entrance.
I did see a lot of people, but they were all making a beeline toward the plaza.
I didn't go to the auditorium. I opted to watch online. The librarian who sponsored the event reported that they ended up letting the patrons in at 8:50 a.m. The auditorium quickly became standing room only. Everyone wanted to watch the I.naguration together. Cheers were heard all the way up on the 3rd flr(mine.). It was a peaceful event that even brought out the city librarian.
