Building Update 2018!!!!

03/21/2018 1:40:00 AM

The Wellsville City Library Building Fund has been steadily “building”.  The library, along with help from the Friends of the Library,  has approximately $336,300.00  The goal for the new addition and renovations has been estimated at $509,000.00.  This leaves about $173,000.00 still left to raise.

Our library has never before used city taxes to purchase a building.  It has always been done through memorials and  donations.  We would like to complete this project solely from donations.  However,  we are also beginning to look at grants to help us reach our goal.

Contact us if you are interested in making a donation to the Wellsville City Library Building Fund.

Let’s just build it, build it, build it!
