New Necedah Library to Open in Mid-November

Link to October 23 Juneau County Star Times article, "The wait is over: new Necedah library building set to open in mid-November".

Excerpt: After years of planning, thousands of dollars in grants and a massive community fundraising effort, the new $1.3 million, 4,800 square foot building for the Necedah Community Siegler Memorial Library is near completion.

"We're hoping that second week of November we'll be open," said library Director Jim Eliason. "It depends on the move."

The new location at the former site of Northern Bay West Golf Course offers library patrons more room to stretch out and read.

"We'll have almost twice the square footage for the stacks and computers," said Eliason.
Likewise, the building features a reading area surrounding a fireplace, wireless Internet access throughout, a coffee bar, expanded children's area and high-top study tables, as well as a 2,400-square-foot community room owned by the village.

Increased space for parking, drastically improved handicap-access and a drive-up book drop round out the exterior features of the facility
