New Building Project Milestones

10/22/2019 City Council voted to sign a contract with the architect firm INVISION for the new library.

10/8/2019 – Grimes City Council approved the new library project with a signed resolution.  We realize the library was not the only city item on the L.O.S.S.T. ballot.  In wanting to be good stewards of the monies and to help the monies be utilized in other ways, the library will also seek grants and private donations.

8/27/2019 – During the City’s strategic planning process, a new library building was made a top priority.

8/06/2019 – L.O.S.S.T. passes!  This allowed the Library project to become a reality.
