While the construction crews install plumbing and pour the foundation for the building the library will be leasing in Ashland, we are busy planning the interior layout of the shelving and locations for the data and electrical outlets. We're very grateful for the generosity and energy of the Friends of the Southern Boone County Public Library , who have decided to initiate a fundraising campaign to raise money to help buy new shelves. We’re reusing as much as we can from the old facility, but with an expanding collection in our expanded space, we’ll need more shelving. We appreciate what they do throughout the year and the extra time and effort they’re putting in now. If you want to learn more, please contact Bridget Canaday .
