Library Grant makes Draft Capital Budget

The New Mendenhall Valley Library project along with new library projects for North Pole, Sitka and Talkeetna made it into the draft Capital Budget (p.26)!

Next step, make it through adoption by full legislature and Gov. Parnell.  Keep your fingers crossed Valley Library supporters, thanks for all your calls and letters to your representatives.

While this funding would mark a huge step in the right direction for our project we still have a long way to go with local fundraising and community support of a 1% CBJ sales tax extension on the October ballot to provide matching funds for the state grant.
