Library Relocation Update

The Library is on track to relocate to its new space this summer on the second floor at 1110 Route 55 in Town Center (across from McDonald's)! The architectural design has been finalized, our contractor has been selected, and we have kicked off our Capital Campaign to assist with the costs of the renovations and furnishings.

These costs will not be paid for by town tax money, but through the Library's building fund, grants, and contributions from our community and local business partners.

In fact, it only takes a few community members to step up and make generous donations by July 1, 2020 for the new space to be fully furnished from day one.

Your support is vital to making the vision of the new library become a reality!

For further details on the relocation, how to donate, and naming opportunities, please go to http://lagrangelibrarycampaign.org/

Or check out our GoFundMe (and SHARE with your social media friends) at: https://www.gofundme.com/f/lagrange-library-relocation

If your would rather mail or drop off a donation, please make sure you specify that it is for the "Capital Campaign". Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!
