Wayne County Public Library
Downtown Monticello was home to the Library for many years. However, the Library outgrew its location of more than 40 years and was unable to expand in place due to the fact the lot was small and they were land-locked. The Board purchased 10 acres on the edge of town for a new building and future projects. BCI investigated the site, which had challenging topography, wet conditions, and sink holes, to determine the best place for the new building. The project was completed in summer 2017 and has become a great place for the community to gather and grow! The total budget for this project was $3.5 million.
