Macksville City Library expansion underway

Macksville Public Library

After a ten year journey, the Macksville City Library expansion project is underway.

“In 2011 this journey began, and our motto was “Dreaming Bigger!” according to an announcement from the library. “With help from the South Central Kansas Library System, we consulted an architect and drew up preliminary plans. We then approached the City Council and were told, ‘If you can raise the funds, you can build it…'”

And so they did.

“Now, 11 years down the road, and hundreds of memorials, many fundraisers, numerous grants, multiple gifts, raffles, and donations later, we are breaking ground for the new addition,” the announcement said. “On August 8th construction workers are planning to begin groundwork on the addition to the library.  B&R Builders, LLC will be in charge of the project, using plans from William Morris Associates, Architects.”

“The new addition will extend east of the existing building and will offer a programming space, children’s book area, a handicap accessible restroom/storm shelter, central heat and air, hot water, and much needed elbow room for patrons and visitors of the Macksville City Library,” the announcement continued.
