Nelson Memorial Library is expanding!   As a fundraising group our goal is to raise $500,000.00 for computers, media accessories, and additional books for our collection.  In order to accomplish that goal, grants are being written and donations are being accepted.  So far we have raised over $160,000.00.

Don’t forget that we have a “Challenge” grant from The Perry Foundation. We need to raise $150,000.00 (in addition to our $160,000.00) in order to receive $100,000.00 from them.

Lots of Construction Work

As we continue to undergo construction, there is a lot of work going on in front of the library. We are not closed. You may need to go toward the Visitor Center in order to gain access to the building. Be careful!

Taking down the brick column.
The plastic sheeting is covering up the new brick on the front of the new section of the library.
Taking off the shingles on the front of the library.
The new window casings are being set in place.


The roof connection between the new and the old library. The roofers are taking off the old roofing to prepare for the new metal roof. Great progress has been made!
