Mitchell Library one step closer to major renovation project

Posted: Updated:

Some big improvements will be coming to the Mitchell Public Library in coming months.

Mitchell City Council has approved final specifications for a long-awaited renovation project.

Construction plans include a newly remodeled children's area, meeting room, and a number of technology upgrades.

Library Director Maryruth Reed says they were initially planning for a larger addition, but had to scale–back the project because of costs.

"But I think we're going to come-up with a very useful facility," says Reed.  "And then we're planning on doing some pretty extensive landscaping too to work with the outside.  So that's where we're at.  We'll be looking at bids a week from Monday at our board meeting and hopefully they will come-in at a price we can afford."

The library board will vote on the bids during their next meeting on March 3, 2014.
