Building Campaign

Consistent growth in use and continued value to the community has marked the history of the library in Buchanan, and today the Buchanan District Library is more active than ever. Our building has grown with us, and we are excited to be nearing the end of Phase 2 of our building plan. Stay tuned for more information on plans to open the Front Street doors!

Building Campaign Highlights

The Buchanan District Library received a $10,000 grant from Indiana Michigan Power, on behalf of the AEP Foundation. This money will assist with the construction of a large community room on the second floor, equipped with full kitchen, to support new programming, local businesses, and organizations.

Thank you!   

Thank you to the Buchanan Lodge #68 Free & Accepted Masons who graciously donated $1,000 to the Building Campaign! We are so grateful for your support.

On September 21, 2018 the Library broke ground on Phase 2 renovations. For more information, please click here.

Join us Thursday, July 25th at 1:00pm as we celebrate opening the Front Street Entrance!
