The Charitable Foundation Trustees have approved and personally supported a fund raising effort to expand the Masonic Library at the Grand Lodge Office Building in Holden. The plan includes closing in the former bank drive through lanes and adding an additional 620 sq. ft. of Library space. Click below to see the architectural drawing.
The addition will enhance the ability of the Library to provide educational opportunities for the Craft, and with the addition of a general interest section, make lending library services available to the Holden area. The space will also be offered to local schools, pre-schools, and daycare facilities as a place for “reading times.”
Will you join with the Trustees in making this project a reality? All donors will be memorialized in a book made part of the permanent collection in the Library. Suggested categories of giving are:
Reader $1.00 through $500.00
Researcher $501.00 through $2,500.00
