Ebooks, Netflix, and Library Building Projects (Part 2, Clay County Public Library)
Library gets OK for its expansion. (Clay County Progress, 4/14/2011)
Excerpt: The library needs more room and Clay County Commissioners gave the OK to beginning planning an expansion.
Clay County Library Board members Mary Katherine West and Leslie Carter made the request to commissioners Thursday, April 7. A donation bequeathed to the library by a patron will be used to pay for the expansion.
County permission to proceed was needed because the county owns the building that houses the Moss Memorial Library, Clay County manager Paul Leek said.
Plans are only preliminary at this time, but involve adding a single story addition to the back of the building, librarian Mary Fonda said. This was part of an earlier expansion in 1998 that had to be cut because of higher than expected supply costs.
