Dedication for Cherry Valley Library Expansion

CHERRY VALLEY (WIFR) -- A local library prepares to open its newest chapter with a three thousand foot expansion.

The Cherry Valley Library on East State Street got a complete makeover in the last several months. The facility serves more than 16 thousand people. Library staff say before the expansion, residents didn’t have a lot of space to study and work and older books had to be given away to make room for new ones. The renovations include upgraded technology and a brand new meeting room.

“Our new addition was built with Wi-Fi tables so people can use their own laptops and look out over the woods and prairies and orchard," says Eve Kirk, the Cherry Valley Library Director.

The facility was paid for with private donations.
