Construction continues on the addition to the Meeker Library, located on the southeast corner of Main and Fifth streets. The addition, located east of the current library, is being enlarged for a classroom in the front of the building, which is the north end of the new construction, and will have a courtyard with a stage, planters and a fountain on the south end of the addition. Meeker librarian Mike Bartlett said the project is set for completion in September.
