Nearly two years have passed since the $900,000 bond was passed for the new Garden Valley Library. The GV Library Board of Trustees has notified the community that because of fluctuations in the cost of building the new library, they are short of money to finish the interior, to the tune of $223,000.
Bond agent, Bob Hildeman, has recommended they hold an election to run a supplemental levy. The board has decided to ask for $250,000.
Board members continue to seek grants and donations and are hoping for a successful fundraising campaign.
