Funds being raised for Horton Library repairs
03/01/2021

Horton Public Library

(KNZA)--The Horton Public Library is seeking the public's assistance in raising funds for needed repairs.

 Library Director Jessica Buhrman said they need to replace and repair the basement walls along with the tile drainage system and egress window system at an estimated cost of more than $28,000.

The drainage system from the 1950's has failed, allowing water into the library and degrading of the walls.  

Buhrman said they have a contractor ready to begin work on March 15.  

Once complete, she said they will be able to re-open the facility and continue to provide the community with full services and programs.  Buhrman said they hope to re-open the week of April 4.

 Currently, they are operating with curb-side only services.  

Buhrman has set up a Go Fund Me account to raise the needed funds https://www.gofundme.com/f/horton-public-library-construction-fund?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=p_cp%20share-sheet&fbclid=IwAR2B_S_Z_aEfm4ARtL3-smKzNXjSOG5Yh_pBm3okACqCIxJLa1RTBd89rJ8
