Ebooks, Netflix, and Library Building Projects (Part 79, Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library)
Kerrville library closed for major upgrades. (San Antonio Express-News, 7/12/2011)
Excerpt: Plans call for the first and second floors of the library, at 505 Water St., to be renovated and a playscape to be added, as well as a new parking lot at a nearby site that was recently cleared of a structure that housed a library-related group.
The library upgrades are being funded, in part, by a $1.5 million gift from Charles Butt and H-E-B, $500,000 in public donations, $200,000 from the Friends of the Library, a $150,000 grant from the Hal and Charlie Peterson Foundation and $55,000 from the Hill Country Charity.
