Lake Agassiz Regional Library is pleased to announce that after 16 years of fundraising efforts by the Clearwater Library Foundation, a new Bagley Library facility will be opening soon. The Clearwater Library Foundation purchased the former Wee-Care Center in 2012, and has made great strides renovating the former daycare facility into a library.
The new library facility will provide additional space, off-street parking, handicap accessibility, and a community room for use by citizens of Bagley, Clearwater County, and surrounding communities.
Renovations include: remodeled restrooms, installation of more features for the disabled, and refurbishment of community gathering spaces. The Bagley Lions Club will paint the interior of the facility with materials provided through a Valspar paint grant, and carpet will be installed this spring.
The Clearwater Library Foundation continues to raise funds to purchase a handicap-accessible door button, furnishings, signage, window treatments, and extraneous expenses. Donations are appreciated. Please send to: Clearwater Library Foundation, P.O. Box 74, Bagley, MN 56621.Donations can also be made to the Bagley Library, a branch of the Lake Agassiz Regional Library, in person, by mail, or online at: www.larl.org/donate. All donations are tax-deductible, and will be used for shelving, furnishings, and expenses for the new library facility.
