Excerpt: Every person who spoke at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Ruth Culver Community Library mentioned what a long time coming this occasion had been.
Helen Campbell, president of the library board, said the board knew in 1997 the library would need more space and hired Val Schute as the architect for the new library building in 2004.
Seven years later work finally is beginning on the library's new space.
"I want you all to know what a thrilling day this is for us," Campbell said.
Jennifer Endres Way, the library's director, ticked off some of the new library's attributes: a quiet reading room, improved technology and beautiful river views.
Endres Way said the $2.3 million new library represented a community effort with more than half its funds being donated.
