The Macomb Public Library is now double its original size thanks to a two story, 10,000 square foot addition. A large children's library takes up most of the first floor of the addition.

This week on Emphasis, Rich Egger’s guests are Macomb Public Library Director Dennis Danowski and Capital Campaign Co-Chairs Melissa Inman and Judy Kerr.

They talk about the campaign to raise $794,025 by June 30, 2013. If that goal is met, the state will provide the library with a $2.38 million grant.

The nearly $3.2 million total will be used to build a two-story addition that will almost double the library’s space.

Kerr said this follows the model established when the community’s Carnegie Library was built in 1904.
