Spring City Library Takes a Leap Forward

After a long planning process, the library project received some necessary approvals.

The Spring City Library requested and received final approval for its building project at 248 Broad Street during Monday night's Spring City Borough Council meeting. 

Following a setback at the December meeting, the library complied with requests from borough council that allowed their approval to go through. 

The vote was unanimous. 

Councilman Michael Hays, a member of the library board, told Patch that the next step will be organizing and putting out bids for the project. 

The library received a $500,000 matching funds grant from the state Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, giving them a total budget of $1 million.

Hays said that the library hopes to break ground "this spring or summer at the latest".

It is great news that the Spring City Library project has finally taken a significant step towards becoming more than a dream. I wish them clear sailing to the finish line.
