On September 13, the Kanawha County Public Library Board of Directors authorized a long-term lease with Interstate Properties, LLC to lease a facility within the Crossings Mall for the new Elk Valley branch. The Elk Valley branch is one of the two branches slated for new construction in the Open a Modern Classic Capital Campaign. The Marmet branch is the other site slated for new construction in the campaign. Expansions are planned for four other branches: Dunbar, Cross Lanes, Sissonville, and St. Albans.
By leasing a new facility for the Elk Valley branch, Library officials will reduce the fundraising needs for the capital campaign by approximately $3 million.
