Support for library renewal project

Momentum behind the Rossland library renewal project surged recently with the announcement of a $75,000 grant from Columbia Basin Trust. This brings the project almost halfway to its $310,000 goal. The grant comes to the library from the Trust’s development program.

“We are very happy and grateful to receive support from Columbia Basin Trust,” said Debbie Nelson, fundraising coordinator for the renewal project. “It shows strong endorsement for the project and, on a bigger scale, great leadership in community development in the region. This is a legacy project that will impact the community for generations.”

The project will use contemporary design and leading edge technology to redesign the library interior to create a dynamic, inspiring and information-rich interior. The new design will add four hundred square feet of public space, increasing the size of the library by almost 30 per cent.

The library renewal committee has joined forces with the Rossland Rotary and multiple community volunteers to host an online auction scheduled for May. Anyone interested in lending a hand is asked to sign up at the library or visit the website at rosslandlibraryrenewal.com.
