What’s Eating The Library?

So far the renovated front entrance to the public library has held up. No more crumbling steps. But now each post of the center railing is corroding away around the base. Maybe it’s from all the salt put down in the winter to keep the stairway clear of ice. According to one theory an ingredient in the new concrete (lime) is doing the damage. Either way, it’s time to think about fixing the rail posts.

Or just let the rail fall over. Then it will cost more to repair.
