Corbin Library looks for $100k

The Corbin Library Board is continuing its efforts to find more than $100,000 needed to fund renovations to the annex building.

At its regular monthly meeting Thursday night, the board members noted that the original cost of the project, which came in at $1.2 million, had been cut down to $748,000.

However, the grant from the Kentucky Department of Libraries and Archives to fund the project is for $636,000

In an effort to cut the cost of the project, the board has slashed numerous parts of the project including completing the kitchen room, the bathrooms, the installation of new electrical wiring.
