Only the shell of the new young adult and children’s area of the Rim Community Library is completed. Additional donations and volunteers are needed to complete the electrical, heating, air conditioning and related work.
The seasonal temperatures continue to edge lower as the days progress toward winter. Some shrubbery and sensitive plants are waning into the fall colors.
Some pockets of near freezing temperatures are starting to occur. Our daily highs stand in the mid 70s with lows in the mid 40s.
The Heber Overgaard Rim Community Library that was opened five years ago and serves Heber Overgaard and the surrounding area has recently undergone expansion.
This expansion was funded in part by funds from the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records under the state grants-in-aid.
The initial total funding received for this project was applied to the base construction this summer of the existing shell that will become the young adult and children’s area.
The funds received were not enough to fund the completion and even though the new addition appears complete from the outside, the inside view tells of a different story and further donations are being solicited from organizations, businesses and private individuals that will fund the remainder of the project.
Once required materials are acquired, a volunteer labor force will be deployed to follow through with the completion of the project. For more information or to make donations, please contact the Rim Community Library for drop-off times and locations at 928-535-5749.
