The Madison County Library expansion project is moving forward. And a construction groundbreaking is set for 11 a.m., March 17, at the library.
Salloum Construction Company of Athens has been hired to expand the library. And county commissioners voted Monday to provide the sales tax money voters approved in 2008 for the project.
The expansion project will increase the library’s size from 10,000 to 17,500 square feet. The library now holds 32,226 books, audio and visual materials. The expansion will give the facility a 100,000 capacity for such materials.
