Manton Library Project Update, City Approves Land Purchase

A Wexford County community that’s fundraising to build a new library just got some exciting news.

The City of Manton approved the purchase of the property next to the local United Methodist Church.

They’re going to buy the lot on Business 131 for $22,500, right in the middle of town.

The library is being funded through community fundraising.

So far, they’ve raised about $4,500 of the needed $22,500, and as soon as they have the money they’ll start building.

“I think the library is going to be important for the community. It’s going to tie the community together,” said Library Fundraising Coordinator Mike Moffit. “It’s going to be at a location that’s visible and clearly a place for people to gather and do their research.”
