The Texas County Library system has contracted with a Rolla firm to study expanding the Cabool branch.
Library Director Audrey Barnhart said the library board has pledged $25,000 in matching funds for the project and renovation of the existing building. To date about $5,700 has been collected from the Cabool community that has been matched. Integrity Engineering of Rolla has been hired.
Anyone interested in the project can make a donation, she said.
Friends of the Cabool Library will host a book sale on Saturday. A canvas tote can be purchased for $8. Proceeds go toward the library building fund and children’s reading room.
The project follows completion of a Texas County Library Foundation project that created a new library at Summersville. It was funded by donations, a Community Development Block Grant and monies from the library.
