What is the timeline for the Refresh?
Assuming we raise the funds that we need, we anticipate a Fall 2023 start date.
How much will this cost?
To make the changes we have planned, the estimate is a little less than $1.8 million dollars.
Will my taxes go up to pay for this?
No. The Library Board is very firm that there will not be a bond or a millage to pay for this project.
Then, how will it be paid for?
Knowing this day would come eventually, the Library Board put money aside each year. As a result, they have saved $1.1 million dollars to commit to this project. The additional $675,000 needed will be raised by private donations, corporate donations, and grants. We will need the community’s help and commitment to make this happen.
What if you raise more than your goal of $675,000?
If more money is donated beyond our goal of $675,000, we will get to dream a bit bigger and make even more improvements to our space.
