Horn Lake library gets $100,000 for renovations | Public Spaces
M.R. Dye Public Library in Horn Lake getting a much-needed face-lift.
Fresh paint, new carpets, repaving the parking lot and relocating the circulation desk is all part of the deal.
According to the Commercial Appeal, the DeSoto County Board of Supervisors is shelling out the funds for the heavily used library that averages 2,700 people visiting each week at 2885 Goodman.
So far, workers have replaced the sidewalks and improved the handicapped ramp. They plan to repave the 68-space parking lot in sections to give patrons a place to park during the renovation period.
All of the work will be done after hours and without closing the library's six-day-a-week operation. The library is closed on Sundays.
DeSoto Board Supervisor Lee Caldwell of Nesbit pushed for the county funding.
