We’re “Growing”

 

Interior remodeling of the library building will begin in late August.  The Friends of the Oostburg Public Library have been raising money for many years so when this time came they would have the funds to finance this project to ease the overcrowding in the library. The Friends have had many fundraising projects over the years to raise money to be able to pay for this remodeling project. Donations are always welcome by the Friends for this project and the many other programs and projects they provide beyond the library budget.
