Here’s an update on where we are with the new building.
- The Library is planning on starting the new building construction when we meet our current funding goal which is $1.3. We are approximately $720k away from our goal. Our project manager is currently working with our architect and site planner to determine the actual cost.
- To help us reach our funding goal, we invite the public to 1) donate to the building fund directly or 2) buy an inscribed brick. Be a part of our new chapter!
