Custer Library completes expansion project
CUSTER, S.D. — The Custer County Library is a little bigger thanks to a partnership with the county and the library foundation.
The expansion project was made possible thanks to a $150,000 commitment from the Custer County Commission. The library foundation then provided the rest for project – a little over $200,000.
Now the library has private conference rooms and a dedicated test proctoring room. Previously, the library didn’t have isolated quiet areas, which is something the library felt the community needed.
“We have all kinds of little groups that need to have a meeting space and it was just lacking in our community. So I think people are really going to enjoy the new look of the library.,” said Doris Ann Mertz, Director of the Custer Library.
The expansion also cleared up more space in the main library for additional books and reading space, while also providing a dedicated area for book sales.
