Carmel library reaches goal

This is a very exciting time for the folks at a little library along the Plymouth Road in Carmel.

People at the Simpson Memorial Library have been working hard to raise money for renovations and an addition.

Today they announced they have topped their goal of more than $406 thousand dollars.

Much of it has come from the Nextgen Foundation which awarded the library with a $200 thousand dollar grant.

The rest came from grants from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation, the Davis Family

  Foundation and from people in the community.

The library hopes to begin construction on the new addition next spring.

They also plan to add running water and a bathroom which the library hasn't had since it was built in 1925.
