Thank you to the Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation and a generous anonymous donation for helping your local libraries!
The project is looking at about $6 million left to reach the goal of $27 million raised. Construction is to begin early next year and last anywhere from 18-24 months.

West Virginia has seen a population decrease since 2007 of about 18,000 residents. This is a .1% population decrease each year.
It is one of the two fastest declining states in the nation right now. This shrinkage may affect finances for its state residents.
However, officials are looking at this as a growth opportunity and optimism is surrounding our communities. This change in the population may make room for residents interested in starting a business, raising a family in a less densely populated region, recoup and enjoy our natural resources, and revitalize West Virginia.
