The Project Manager on the library for Sarasota County, Kim Humphrey, said the work is on schedule meaning that construction is still anticipated to be complete by late Fall. Starting May 1, county residents will be invited to community meetings from 10:30 a.m. to noon and 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. as part of a topping-off ceremony.
“Meanwhile, the Friends of the Venice Library is about three-quarters of the way through a $1 million fundraising campaign, said Camille Cline, who is spearheading the effort. With a May 1 change-order deadline fast approaching, three key items that carry a naming opportunity are still available — the Compass Rose underneath the skylight for $100,000, lighting of the east parking lot for $76,000 and enhancing the Farley Literary Landmark for $73,000.”
