For over a decade, ACPL’s Board & Staff have felt that a new library facility is needed. In the past 3 ½ years alone, we have spent almost $130,000 in repairs/improvements for the building. If, after recent repairs, our windows continue to leak, we will need to pay at least $85,000 to replace them (after tax credits and grants, if approved). Our building’s original purpose was as a post office, constructed in 1914/15; not a library. We have treasured our time in this historical building since 1980 and know that others have an attachment, as well. We aren’t interested in a massive, new building; only one that offers more adequate space reflective of our community’s and library’s needs. But a new facility isn’t cheap. We prefer not to ask for additional taxpayer money, although we feel that a public library serves as an important institution, especially in a high-poverty community. We are interested in how much support our community is willing to give for their public library.  How we proceed depends upon you. After all, this is YOUR library.
