Mindoro Community Library in Limbo

Link to October 13 Jackson County Chronicle article.

Excerpt: New shelving and a computer in the Farmington Town Hall are the building blocks for a future Mindoro Community Library building.

In May, thanks to Hearts and Hammers volunteers who built shelving from materials paid for by the town of Farmington, the library’s collections were moved into the Farmington Town Hall on Highway 108 in Mindoro.

Volunteers staff the library 4-6 p.m. on Mondays. In addition, materials can be checked out during town hall hours. Materials are checked out on an honor system.

The plans for a new building might be on hold or slowly progressing, but fundraising activity for a new building hasn’t stopped and neither has the regular programming
