Addison Township Board of Trustees Contributes $128,000.00 to Library New Building Fund


April 21, 2022


On Monday April 18, 2022, at the regularly scheduled meeting of the Addison Township Board of Trustees, the Trustees voted unanimously to contribute $128,000.00 to the Library’s New Building Fund. 

The Library Board was thrilled upon hearing the news. “This contribution is a further indication of the community’s support for our project and will directly reduce the planned construction loan needed to complete project funding,” said James Baldiga, Library Board President.

When announcing the contribution, Township Supervisor Bruce Pearson noted, “The Township Board is very supportive of using $128,000.00 of the Federal ARPA money for the Library.  That, combined with the $500,000.00 from Congress will make a huge contribution to our Library’s construction project.”

The Library’s New Building Committee continues to work with the architects to refine the plan for the new building.  Plans for a ground-breaking this Summer are also in the works.
