Library board establishes new fund for building project


At its Oct. 26 meeting, the Friday Memorial Library Board approved the creation of a New Richmond Area Community Foundation fund, that will only be used for funds going toward new construction for a new library building.

“This new fund is specifically and only for new construction, not for anything else, like buying books,” said Library Board President Jeff Peplau. “We are hoping to have things decided and the project underway by this spring.”
