Our renovation project has begun! Our library is a recipient of the NE Department of Economic Development’s Civic and Community Center Financing Fund matching grant. The city of Arapahoe has formally awarded Paulsen, Inc the project. Wilkins Architecture Design Planning of Kearney is the firm who have designed the renovation and the addition.
A 1,720 square foot addition will add a community room dedicated to activities. A new ADA accessible entry and new accessible bathrooms will address our problem areas. There will also be 1,200 square feet of intensive renovations to better utilize the library spaces, increase security and overall library function. A drive-up service window and lane are also being added to the east side of the building.
