WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Thanks to record-setting attendance at many of the library’s programs all year long, we need more space! After a needs assessment conducted with input from members of the community and the library staff, the foundation agreed that its top goal for the foreseeable future should be to raise funds to expand the facility. When the trustees saw what the library needed to serve its growing constituency, they bought about three acres of land just north of the library and west of Chapel in the Hills for expansion.

The library trustees have approved a plan that will cost about $2 million. The three drawings below show, in order: first, the library building as it is today; second, the first phase of the addition; and third, the final phase or what the library will look like when the entire project has been completed
