Head of D.C. library system earns architectural award WASHINGTON —When Ginnie Cooper accepted the post as chief librarian and executive director of the District of Columbia Public Library, she knew it entailed some big challenges, particularly in dealing with the institution’s crumbling facilities.
WORTHINGTON — In the continued search for a new site for the Worthington branch of the Nobles County Library, county administrator Tom Johnson said one perfect site hasn’t been found — but there is a new idea.
WORTHINGTON - Nobles County Library Director Julie Wellnitz and Plum Creek Library System regional director Mark Ranum gave a presentation to Nobles County commissioners during the regular meeting Tuesday morning.
Wellnitz started by sharing some statistics.
Wilkening to check with state on possibility for assistance with proposed project
WORTHINGTON — In one of the briefest meetings in recent months, Nobles County commissioners on Tuesday had a short list of agenda items to work through, primarily approving contract renewals and paying for ongoing maintenance upgrades.
WORTHINGTON — Just two weeks after authorizing staff to apply for a $500,000 Minnesota Department of Education grant for construction of a new library, Nobles County commissioners on Tuesday learned it may not be the best thing to pursue at this time with uncertainties about the project still lingering.
Staff to seek $1 million in funding from Department of Education
WORTHINGTON — Despite their plans to wait until mid-April to decide whether a new branch of the Nobles County Library will be built in Worthington, Nobles County Commissioners on Tuesday authorized library staff to apply for a $1 million public library accessibility improvement grant available from the Minnesota Department of Education for library improvements.
New county shop building, expanded PJC garage move forward
WORTHINGTON — With three new commissioners sworn into office during Tuesday’s Nobles County board meeting, there were simply too many questions and not enough answers for them to approve a proposed $13 million capital improvement plan that would include construction of a new Worthington branch of the Nobles County Library.
WORTHINGTON — After a motion to proceed with a not-to-exceed $13 million capital improvement plan died for lack of a second, Nobles County Commissioners this morning made two separate motions that will ultimately mean further delays for a county library building project in Worthington.
New commissioners also to be sworn in this morning
WORTHINGTON — When three Nobles County commissioners are sworn into office this morning, one of the first things on their agenda will be to hear public testimony from Friends of the Library chairwoman Gretchen O’Donnell and Library Board chairwoman Jean Meester about the importance of a new county library building project in Worthington.
