Future plans for the Norfolk, Neb. library will be decided by the whole community


The future plans for one northeast Nebraska library will be decided by the whole community.

The Norfolk Public Library Foundation recently voted to fund a public survey about the potential expansion and renovation of the city's library. In January, project architects announced their plans for the future of the library.

The addition would be nearly 16,000 square feet. "The Norfolk Public Library Foundation feels very strong about what they've come back with, and what we did last week was to put some plans together to give us an idea and the city as well and idea, do this citizen survey to see where things stand with them," said Jim Curry, Norfolk Public Library Foundation President.

The plans also call for the creation of a gathering space, study rooms, and better staff workrooms for library staff. Plans also call for expansion of the current parking lot in the facility.

The Norfolk City Council still has the ultimate say on whether or not the project moves ahead. If the council gives approval, the foundation is ready to offer its assistance.
