We are bursting at the seams! Our 800 square foot library can no longer fit all the requests that walk through our doors. We have a strong mission, defined by our users, but not enough space to fulfill it.
A plan of action is in the works. A Comprehensive Plan was completed in January 2018 after public meetings, in-put from stakeholders, fact-finding field trips, space-needs defined, funding sources identified and business plan were all developed. As we pursued more grants, we further refined the initial Comprehensive Plan, identifying more partners for services and resources, engaging more stakeholders into the conversation, and fine tuning what was the strongest fit for our community.
Presently we are applying for funds through Department of Housing and Community Development: Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) Grant and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Women’s Foundation, Roanoke Valley Gives, and Cabell Foundation. If successful, the owner, Craig County will provide only 2% of the cost of building The Resource Center.No comments
