Gays Mills Public Library Part of Village Relocation from Flood Plain

Posted by on Monday, May 24, 2010 in WLA Blog Archive
State and federal money will fund costs of relocating the village from a flood plain, including moving the Gays Mills Public Library, according to a USDA blog post. The village flooded extensively in 1978, and again in 2007 and 2008.

The relocated library will be housed in a building that will also include the Village Community Building, Village Offices, Library and Community Kitchen. A USDA Community Facilities Loan of $1,081,500 will help with the relocation of these facilities. The village will also take advantage other grants from federal and state sources.

Maura Otis, library director, says that the design phase is in the very beginning stages at this point, but the project is exciting – and important to the community’s future.
