Library fundraising campaign ready to go. (Portage Daily Register, 2/28/2012)

Excerpt:   Library backers hope to raise $1.05 million to support the $1.75 million project. The rest of the money will come from the city and grants from the Bidwell Foundation. 

The expansion project is expected to increase the size of the current building, add room for children’s programming and fix a number of deficiencies and aging features of the building on West Edgewater Street.
