Skowhegan library gets community support

SKOWHEGAN — GFWC/Semper Fidelis recently presented a $500 donation to the Skowhegan Free Public Library Renovation Project. This money will go towards the construction of the elevator addition, ensuring the library and its facilities will be available to all members of the community.

This will be the final phase in the Renovation Project that has been underway for the last six years. Much work has been achieved to reach this milestone. Structural repairs, window restoration, electrical and plumbing updates, and HVAC and Sprinkler systems throughout the building have been completed, according to a news release from the library. Most recently, 2,500 square feet of formerly unused space in the basement have been transformed into a Genealogy Room, a Meeting Room, a Computer Work Center, two ADA compliant bathrooms and a kitchenette.

The community is invited to an Open House set for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 29, at the library on Elm Street.
