Dennis Danowski

Rich Egger

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.
