Pave the Way!

Thanks to the support of many generous donors, we’ve completed our Phase 2 landscape development plan. Additional improvements have also been approved by the Board of Trustees, and will help make the library an even more accessible and inviting community destination. More details about these improvements will be posted soon.

You can support the ongoing landscape project with the purchase of a custom-engraved paver. Hundreds of pavers have already been installed in the front plaza of the new library.  Additional pavers will be installed annually as long as space remains, first in the front plaza and then in the south entry sidewalk if needed.  Through March 31, 2023, the cost per paver is $150. Beginning in April 2023, the price will increase to $200. All profits will support future landscaping improvements.

To order your paver, first download the paver order form  or pick up a copy at the library. Your completed order and payment should then be returned to the library. You can also make your payment online – but be sure to complete and submit your paver inscription order as well! For more information on this project, contact the library or call Cindy Taggart at 517-505-6568.
