Sikeston may soon see the expansion of their library, but not without some hefty fundraising first. Members of the Sikeston Library Board of Trustees are working to raise the $475 to $500 thousand needed to refurbish the lower level. The last expansion of the library came in the early ‘90’s, with the addition of the McAmis Community Room. Back then the Library's summer reading program reportedly served around 200 children. By last year, it has reportedly grown to nearly 2,500, with over 240 programs for children serving over 8 thousand people. Architect Dale Rogers with Starnes and Associates are working with the Sikeston Library Board, and have reportedly proposed turning the lower level into 800-square-foot space with area for presentations. The kitchen will be refurbished and the area will be updated, offering the latest in technology for use in programs and meetings.
