Blanchard Library dedication set for Saturday

| September 15, 2021 1:00 AM

A celebration is planned for Saturday, Sept. 18, to dedicate the West Bonner Library District's new Blanchard Library.

The Blanchard Library first opened its doors at 412 Railroad Avenue in February 2005. It was housed in a leased modular until 2016, when property owners Larry and Cindy Cunningham gifted land to the library district making it possible to plan for a permanent structure.

Work began on a leased triple wide office unit which was placed on a foundation. The interior was retrofitted to the library's specifications, the exterior was sided, and landscaping was completed. In less than two years the building lease will be up, releasing more tax dollars to go toward library services.

Join the library board as they dedicate the Blanchard Library in honor of the Cunninghams, whose generous donation made it possible for the Blanchard community to enjoy a thriving library.

The event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 18 at 1 p.m. at the Blanchard Library. Refreshments will be served.
