Rumney Library decides it’s time for a lift

RUMNEY — The Lift Committee for the Rumney library's handicapped access project has so far raised nearly half of the $356,500 needed to make the library fully accessible for people with limited mobility.

The committee is now issuing a special appeal to the public in hopes of getting as close to the fundraising goal as possible total before requesting the balance next March's Town Meeting.

The project entails construction of a new entrance with lift, and a new restroom and stairway which meet accessibility and fire codes.

Those unable to use the stairs will be able to visit this historical architectural gem, take advantage of all the library resources and participate in popular activities, committee members note. In addition, the lower level will have a second fire exit, opening the way to re-establishing the use of this wonderful space, including the original stage. Once completed the space can be used to host book discussions, speakers, children's programs and musical events.

An additional space in the lower level will be used as the Rumney/New Hampshire/Genealogy room and will contain historical records .Many New Hampshire towns have had to build large additions to meet their growing needs. Rumney has the good fortune of only requiring a new entrance.
Librarian, Susan Turbyne reports record numbers of patrons, visitors and programs. The collection is continuously updated. WiFi and computers are in constant use. The library is a dynamic hub of culture, education and comradery. Please visit Susan's blog at www.rumneylibrary.blogspot.com to see for yourself.
Grants, donations as well as orders for engraved bricks are arriving. Bricks can be ordered in various sizes ranging in cost from $50 to $1,000 which can be engraved with names, artwork and/or quotations. The bricks will become part of the new entrance walkway.
The Lift Committee is encouraging members of the public to mail or drop off their order or donations as you visit the library. Checks should be made out to the Byron G. Merrill Library, 10 Buffalo Road, Rumney, NH 03266. Order forms for bricks are available at the library, on posters at Rumney's Post Office and Town Office and online at www.rumneylibrary.blogspot.com.
