t’s a challenge to do everything we do and to offer everything our growing community needs in the small space we have.
As has always been true in the history of the Berryville Public Library, concerned citizens are stepping up to help. Berryville Mayor Tim McKinney has donated city land for a new library facility, and a revamped Friends of the Berryville Library, Inc., has been leading the push for a new facility.
To adequately meet the needs of our community, we need a 10,000-square-foot building. And to build that, we will need a budget of $3,500,000. Since library tax money cannot be used for building a new facility, the money we need must be raised privately.
We have a 5-year plan to break ground in 2025, with a brand-new library facility designed by Butch Berry of nearby Eureka Springs.
However, we can’t write the next chapter of the Berryville Public Library’s story without your help.
