On October 5, 1971, there was a groundbreaking ceremony for the new library building. The event attracted many residents of the community, including, a little Chris Crookshanks who was excited to be an active participant in the ground baking event. The new building was dedicated on November 8th,1981. As the population grew, they added 4,000 square feet at the rear of the stack wing. In 1988, significant improvements were made to assist handicapped access. The children’s room was refurbished with new lighting, stacks, and carpet; the desk and office area was also added.
