Exciting news at the Library……The Children’s Library Expansion Project has been approved by the Library Board and we are moving forward. There will be an article in this week’s Herald. This picture shows the outside of the children’s library with the expansion. It will extend to the sidewalk on 2nd street and Alleghany, adding 1150 sq. feet to the Library. This space will be used for large group programs, a collaborative study room, additional storage, and additional gathering space for all. Contact the Library with any questions.  Donations may be mailed to the Wabasha Public Library at 168 Alleghany Ave., Wabasha  MN  55981, please mark your donation “children’s library expansion project”.  Thank you.
