When walking along the sidewalk to the library, or entering the Butterfly Garden you may have noticed bricks lining those areas The MLA has a commemorative brick project that is ongoing. These bricks may be purchased to commemorate a special day or achievements, as memorials for a loved one, or to recognize someone special. Three lines of 11 letters, spaces and punctuation will fit on one brick. The minimum donation is $75 per brick. Forms for the project are located in the library.
Community Library Expansion
With the help of a professional grant writer, the MLA applied for a grant to expand and remodel the library. The library currently has insufficient space available to support large forums for programs supporting Adult Enrichment and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) activities. In addition, the existing library needs renovation. The MLA is actively soliciting donations for the building expansion and renovation. Your help will be greatly appreciated and is tax deductible.
