The Arapaho Library in Lincoln City, Utah, is about to become a real-life book store.
The library is located just east of the Lincoln City Civic Center, and is currently undergoing renovation, according to a release from the Lincoln Library Board.
The project is being funded by the Lincoln-Chickasaw Community Foundation, and includes the addition of the new library, as well as a library card storage space, according the release.
The new building, designed by Miele Architects, is located on the north side of the library, and has a new, expanded entrance on the south side, according a release.
This will be the first time a book library has been built in Lincoln, according Jodie Fisch, vice president of the Arapahi National Library System.
She said the library has always been a place where people come to share their knowledge, and the new addition is an added bonus.
The Arapaha National Library Board also announced plans to donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the book sale to the local library, with funds also being given to other library systems.
The plan is to raise $500,000 to support a library that has been neglected for years.
The library board said it will also use the funds to help establish a “book-friendly” program in the Lincoln community.
Fisch said the plan is great news for the Aapahoe community.
“This is an opportunity for us to show our support for libraries in the community and to say thank you for your generosity, and for your support,” she said.
“We are really looking forward to it.”
