Construction begins on New Buffalo library

New Buffalo, Mich. A new library is becoming a reality for a small lakeshore town that sees plenty of activity during the summer.

Today was the groundbreaking for the New Buffalo facility-- about a $6 million project.

Five million of that came from the pockets of residents, through a self-imposed millage

The rest came from the Pokagon Fund.

The library was specifically designed to meet the needs of the township -- which balloons in population over the summer months.

“That's one of the things that's wonderful about working on libraries. They really are an out-growth of the support of the community,” explains project architect Daniel Durkee. “And so the design has come about with valuable input from leaders of the community and members of the library staff and it reflects the content of the New Buffalo town."

The project will take about a year to complete.
