brick buildingWe at Lincoln Library take small steps ahead every day as we complete our daily goals and inch forward on long-term goals. This week our stride was a little longer as we took an exciting step that we have been anticipating for quite some time.

After purchasing the Mason’s building north of us in August, we have discussed its future in detail. We made a list of the top priorities that we would like to see incorporated into this expansion and we shared that list this week with Bill Morris of William Morris Associates, an independently owned architectural office.

I know we have a long journey ahead before we see the completion of this project. We must finalize plans, address project funding, and secure a contractor, which all takes time. Once completed, this expansion will provide an ample amount of additional space that will not only benefit the library, but the community as a whole.
