CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | APRIL 11-17, 2019 CUMBERLAND / LINCOLN 11 LINCOLN – The Lincoln Public Library at 145 Old River Road has hoped to establish a dedicated out- door space for its guests since its last construction project nearly five and a half years ago. That goal may finally be reached this year, as the project went out to bid in March. It's been a long time coming for library-goers and direc- tor Becky Boragine, who has been wanting to create an outdoor space since an addition was put onto the building in 2013. "After we opened the addition, we had this area in front of the children's room that we wanted to spruce up," she said. "It's just been grass." If construction proposals come in on or under bid, crews can get started on the project this spring. Boragine said the project would be funded with help from The Champlin Foundation, which donated funds for a previous proj- ect that involved the removal of a soffit. That original project was abandoned, so Boragine asked Champlin's permission to use some of the funds to improve lighting in the library, with what's left over helping to pay for the outdoor seat- ing area. The outdoor area will be located to the right of the library, in front of the children's room wing. A stamped concrete pad will be surrounded by benches, and the design would allow library staff to add additional tables and chairs as needed for events. The space would be covered by a shade canopy or umbrella. "We could have the children's room doing a craft out there, the ladies who come to knit could sit outside, and it would be Wi-Fi acces- sible. You could sit and have your lunch outside or bring a book to read," Boragine said.
