Representatives Gather For Carnegie Restoration Kickoff
With construction expected to begin later this week, representatives from the Friends of the Carnegie, the City of Bemidji, Widseth Smith Nolting architects, Bradbury Stamm Construction, and many construction and restoration firms gathered for the kickoff of the Carnegie Library restoration project Tuesday.
“We are so pleased that the work to preserve this historic building is beginning,” says Suzanne Liapis, President of the Friends of the Carnegie. “After six long years of fundraising, planning, and hard work by so many volunteers and community members, our vision is at last becoming a reality. We want to thank all our supporters for their steady faith and generosity as we come to this exciting milestone.”
Construction is expected to be completed in late spring 2019.
