Orestes performing the difficult task of affixing a gutter to the Kytherian Municipal Library

The building had been constructed and maintained without a gutter to take water away from the walls. This would have caused inevitable dampness problems inside the building in due course.

Note that the paint work on the walls is of a very low standard. The entire Library was re-painted during August 2013, which enhanced the aesthetic and water-proofing capacity of the building immeasurably.

The rusty, dangerous wall on the southern boundary was removed.....

and reconstructed in stone, to match other parts of the exterior of the Library. This resulted in a considerable additional expense, but was considered very necessary to complete the construction to a high standard.

Fixing the boundary fence to a high standard, enticed neighbour, Panayotis Defterevos (Panayotis Rent a Car) to offer the land next to Library as a parking lot fof the Library. This was an unexpected bonus of the work.

Water mills look like little sheds or houses.

We are certain that visitors to Kythera pass them every day - without realising that they are water mills - and why the canals feed into them.

Water travelled along a series of canals, througout Mylopotamos - all interlinked. Water would fall from a height into a designated water mill wheel, turning the wheel, and then the stone, and hence crushing the wheat.

Mills were owned by individual families.

Those who grew wheat, but had no mills, would bring ...
