Library addition estimate: $800,000 to $1 million

By Monty Siekerman
The vacant lot north of the Ada Public Library will see an addition to the library and much-needed parking in the near future.

The library board advertised for an architect for an addition and renovation estimated to cost $800,000 to $1 million. 

They received eight responses, interviewed four firms, and on Wednesday decided on the top candidate: Garmann/Miller Associates of Minster.

The company the board favored provides not only archictural services, but also engineering services. They have experience with libraries, schools, business, and industry.

Photos and story by Monty Siekerman

If you ever want to have a successful party for young children, throw a Pigeon Party That's exactly what the Ada Public Library did Friday afternoon.

In this photo, youngsters listen to Natalie Walton read one of Mo Willems' books. The kids found out why pigeons don't drive busses.

At the party, the children enjoyed crafts, games, a treasure hunt, and snacks. The smiles on the youngsters' faces proved the party's success.
