The Roscommon DDA has made a commitment of $300,000 over the next three years towards the new library.

“This will be a great addition to the area providing a center point for community events, educational activities, use of technology and, of course, a comfortable place to leisurely read,” DDA President James Anderson said.

The Roscommon DDA has made this commitment towards the project as it believes it will be an asset to the community to be used and enjoyed currently and for years to come.

Architect Thomas O’Brien is currently working on the architectural plans and bidding will go out early March. Ground breaking could be as early as April.

The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is collecting donated funds for the new building. All donations to the library, no matter the size, are appreciated by the library staff and board.

To view a plan of the library, visit either the library at 241 East Federal Highway in Roscommon, or click the “Grow with us” tab at the library web site at www.roscommonlibrary.org.
