KENT ISLAND EXPANSION AND RENOVATION PROJECT UPDATE

Manns Woodward Studio formally presented the most popular plan (~12,220 sq ft) to the County Commissioners Tuesday, February 13, 2018.  The total cost of the project is estimated to be between 6-8 million dollars.  Support for the much needed expansion is not in question but how to pay for it.  Please let your Commissioner know we need the expansion and the inclusion of our Local History Room!  Watch the presentation here starting at the 144:20 mark.

NEW!!!  Library Expansion FAQs!  Don't forget to support our Kent Island Heritage Society History Room in the new plans!
