Fund-raising shortfall may delay Central Library features


Though optimistic, library planners assemble items to hold

Fund-raisers for the new Downtown Central Library acknowledge they are less than halfway to the $8 million goal they set for the end of November, which might imperil some amenities for the $140 million project.

While taxpayers are providing $125 million for the library, its construction budget also relies on $15 million of private funds. The $8 million November goal is one milestone; with five weeks to go, contributions are $3.7 million.
