Friends of the Library Moving Forward
At the January 21 City Council Meeting, the Friends of the Library presented an update on fundraising activities for the proposed new library facility. According to Friends officials, the total amount of funds available (excluding the City’s contribution) is $532,991.70. In a unanimous vote, the Council authorized the architect to proceed with finalizing the documents and drawings in preparation for bidding the project.
The North Sioux City Community Library was one of seven South Dakota libraries who were accredited by the South Dakota State Library. Deb Matthys, Library Director, represented the NSC Community Library at a ceremony before lawmakers and the public in the Capitol Rotunda in Pierre on January 10, 2013.
