The Lawrence County Public Library is excited to announce a building renovation project with a tentative start date of winter 2018.

The Board of Trustees approved an architectural feasibility study conducted in November 2017 to provide a vision for the future of the library.

Work will include updating the existing building to expand and improve public service areas, technology, and to facilitate the rapid growth of library usage. The renovation focuses heavily on the interior of the building with the only addition being an expansion of the children’s area.

The library will not relocate during renovation and some services may be limited during the construction phase.

Due to the financial stewardship of previous administrations and Trustees, the project will be funded by revenue accrued by the Library district.

Taxpayers will not see an increase in Library taxes due to the renovation. In 2017 – 2018, the Board of Trustees chose to approve a tax rate lower than the compensating rate.

Design for the project is being administered by OPN Architects located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The project has an estimated completion date of 12-18 months.

"...There was a man named Jack Van Vlack that contacted me back in the early spring he had heard about our ministry and wanted to help. He is originally from New York City but I have met with him a couple of times in person.

Jack has started a campaign called 'QUARTERS CROSSING BOARDERS' and the money to be raised will help fund Thanksgiving baskets for the ones in need in the community of Blaine, Ky.

He has raised quite a bit of money already and also he has been collecting clothing and school supplies from five other states and is bringing that into the Fallsburg, Ky. area this weekend.

Mr. Van Vlack will be coming in this Saturday to donate his time to help at our pantry, Lawrence County Food Bank.

Blake Knowles and I couldn't be more excited to participate in such a great cause! Please let me know if you have children's/teenager's clothes, school supplies or non perishable food items you would like to donate. I must have all donations by next Thursday!
