Carlinville Public Library Needs a New Roof

Carlinville Public Library has a roof problem. During every hard rain, water can be seen trickling down the walls in various locations. The library must act fast to prevent further damage to the building and the precious books it holds.

Work to replace the roof we share with City Hall is set to begin mid-November 2020 and expected to take a few weeks. The library's portion of the total cost of a new roof is estimated to be around $80,000. This will be a major hit to Carlinville Library's maintenance fund and could have budget implications for years to come. 

We are seeking funds in any amount to help offset the costs of these emergency repairs.

Contributions to the roof fund are wildly appreciated and recognized by a deep bow from all the librarians. :) *thank you, thank you, thank you!* *clap, clap, clap*
