Heritage Architectural Associates will be sharing plans and probable costs associated with the top desired scenarios for redevelopment of the Xenia Carnegie Library.  The concepts were developed in response to a six-month long community planning process that included tours of the site, online surveys, and public outreach.  The presentation will be followed by community input, and discussions of other similar historic projects, with an overview of next steps including potential partnerships, suggestions for funding, and short-term measures to protect the building for the future.

Interested parties can visit the Xenia Carnegie Library Facebook page or the City of Xenia’s website www.explorexenia.com and search “Carnegie Library” to learn about ways to be involved.  For more information and conversations, go to the volunteer-administered Xenia Carnegie Library Facebook Page.

Efforts by the Xenia Carnegie Library Friends are supported by the City of Xenia through a Community Development Block (CDBG) planning grant, and through a Daniel K. Thorne Intervention Fund grant of The National Trust Preservation Fund and the Greene County Board of Commissioners, owners of the historic structure.
