Library thanks donors
for rising to challenge
Raymond Village Library’s Grant Challenge was successful, and it would like to thank everyone who contributed. Contributions totaled $2,000, which was matched by an anonymous donor. The money will be used for the library’s bathroom construction project.
Also, the library has received generous donations of materials from local merchants. Framing lumber, paint and flooring have all been donated to the library to keep the project on track and within budget. Great thanks to Hancock Lumber, Miller Flooring, the new Paris Farmers Union and their partner Valspar.
The library still needs donations of electrical fixtures, sheet rock, electrical wiring and outlets.
