    History of the building

    In 2010, the Library's main building was running out of space, so the library board decided to construct an annex building behind the main library to house storage space, provide kitchen services, and offer conference space for meetings and events. D&D Construction (David Parks) of Mountain Home ran the project assisted by volunteers starting in the summer of 2010, with completion in December of that year.
