Each Leland Township trustee acts as the township representative a commission or board in addition to sitting on the town board. My assignment is the Leland Library Board. Today was my first library board meeting and it was an important one as we were reviewing bids for the upcoming renovation project.
Construction is scheduled to begin in mid February and to be finished mid May. Much of the collection will go into storage, but a skeleton collection will be available in a temporary setup in the Munnecke Room. Right now there is a silent auction going on to sell many of the current furnishings, including bookshelves, tables, and chairs. Bid sheets are attached to items throughout the library and the bidding will end Saturday at 4 pm.
