Give the Library a Lift! Update
BY STEVE GOLD, BOARD VICE PRESIDENT The freshly recapped library
chimney, part of the GLL
The Library’s multi-year Capital Campaign, called Give the renovations.
Library a Lift! (GLL), came to a very successful conclusion in
January of 2020. That fundraising effort, counting gifts and
pledges, was supported by more than 200 individuals, families
and organizations and exceeded its goal of $600,000. This
has put the Library in wonderful shape to
continue implementation of the 25 different
projects in our building.
That implementation was initiated prior to the completion of
fundraising, under the very able leadership, first of the Library’s
previous Director, Tom McKone, and, for the past year, of Nonprofit
Director Jessie Lynn, because some physical plant problems
couldn’t wait. Specifically, the refinishing of the exterior woodwork
on the addition, and the refurbishment of the windows in the
historical building, both demanded attention as soon as possible.
The windows project was partially funded by a grant from Vermont
This spring, two more GLL projects have been completed
successfully: the installation of a cooling unit in the Hayes room,
which was partially funded by a matching grant from the Vermont
Arts Council; and some critical masonry work - the recapping of
a leaking chimney and the replacing of deteriorated mortar, both on the exterior of
the historic building. Two more now are underway: a new book drop for the Main St.
entranceway will soon be in place, and our most ambitious project, the upgrade and
modernization of our 40-year-old elevator is scheduled to begin by early fall.
In order to be able to effectively carry out the entire scope of GLL projects, the library
planned to hire a project manager to oversee the many complex aspects of all the
projects. We are very fortunate to have found an excellent person to fulfil this role.
Richard Horchler, recently retired from his own business, was sought out by Jessie,
who was familiar with his work and knew he was just the person we needed. Rich has
already started putting his extensive experience and capabilities to work.
In these challenging times, with the Library’s services impacted negatively by the
pandemic, as have so many of our core community institutions, it is tremendously
uplifting to see such tangible positive things happening for KHL’s home. We are giving
the Library a lift, not figuratively but actually, both a facelift — windows, masonry,
new book drop, and, soon, in the renewed “lift,” the elevator. You can follow our
progress on the KHL website at kellogghubbard.org/lift.
