Checking In At The New Hiler Media Center

March 14, 2018

Construction continues to get closer to the finish line!  The new "Hiler Media Center" being constructed at  Roosevelt and Adams St. will soon replace the Lincoln Township Public Library located in the former Brass Lion on Michigan St.  

 

 

 

The Walkerton-Lincoln Township Public Library was founded in 1913. The first books owned by the library were gained by holding a "Book Shower" which brought in a total of 150 books and generous donations totaling $2.00! It has been housed in three different buildings throughout it's history. 

 

 

 

 

$1.4 million worth of new construction will double the number of computer terminals, add a community room, includes a teen room, and it will  even have a fireplace!

 

Part of the funding comes from a $250,000 donation from the Hiler Foundation, which also donated the land for the project. The financial package also includes a $400,000 state grant from the Office of Rural and Community Affairs. The remaining $750,000 will come from a bond to be repaid with property taxes.  it’s said that payment will be tax neutral and will be offset by other obligations that are coming off the tax rolls.
