November 11, 2021

The Lewis County High School Class of 1961 recently made a $1,001 donation towards the expansion and renovation project at the library to honor those in their class that have passed. Pictured, from left, class representative Charles Talley, library director Crystal Nash, and Joan Talley.

Visitors to the library during Friends of the Library Week (October 19 - 23) enjoyed many treats and surprises throughout the week, including many incentives to donate toward the expansion and renovation project. Some visiting members of LCHS Class of 1961 during the week were inspired to take up a collection for this project from their fellow classmates. Class representative Charles Talley, with his wife Joan, presented a check to library director Crystal Nash for $1,001 to honor those in their class that have passed.

"We were really surprised by the amount collected. I'm very proud of the class of '61 for supporting the library," Charles stated. The Class of 1961 formally challenges other LCHS classes to "beat their donation of $1,001" towards this important million-dollar construction project. "We all used the library when we were in high school, and I know that so many folks in town need the library now for more than just books. Getting to use the computers, or to look up their family history, this library really is important to all of us."

"Building for the Future - Preserving the Past" will double the size of the current library, adding much needed storage for historical county documents, a 100-capacity community meeting room, additional restrooms, and improvements and upgrades to the existing facility. Donations for this project may be made at Lewis County Public Library and Archives, or online by visiting the Friends of the Library website at http://www.lewislibraryfriends.com.
