Community Plaza - Work Underway
The parking lot between the main library and annex, the Carnegie East Wing, is currently being transformed into a community plaza! The space will have a fountain, stage, pergola connecting the two buildings, and personalized community pavers.
This is a project that has been in the making since the Spring of 2016. $150,000 was awarded to the project through the Blue River Community Foundation's Ignite Grant in March 2017. An additional $45,000 has been raised through purchases of bricks and generous donors including the Rotary Club and Beaty/C-Tech.
We are still raising funds for the pergola in the plaza. If you would like to make a donation, they can be directed to:
