Newton Commission OKs next steps for new library building

NEWTON – At last Tuesday’s Newton City Commission meeting, the board approved a contract for design and construction drawings for a proposed new Newton Public Library in Military Park.

The City and Library Board in June 2020 approved an agreement to proceed with the estimated $8.5 million project, with the City funding $4.5 million, the library $1.3 million, and $2.7 million raised from private donors.

Over the past year, fundraising consultant Swanson House and a team of local volunteers have secured $1.4 million in pledges so far, exceeding a goal of raising half the private funding by the end of the year, Director of Communications Erin McDaniel reported in a news release.

The public phase of fundraising will now begin and continue as the design phase begins.
