We had a wonderful day for a ceremonial groundbreaking at the Keene Memorial Library Expansion Project! Browse some of the wonderful photos taken by Kaley Schlueter Photography below.
The Friends of Keene Memorial Library are once again sponsoring the Expansion Project during the Fremont Area Big Give. Early giving is available now, or you can donate on Tuesday May 10.
We have an anonymous sponsor who will match the first $5,000 in donations, and the Rupert Dunklau Foundation matching grant is still in play. So you can effectively triple your donation during this campaign!
