Work continues on the Marsh Harbour Library with the Marsh Harbour Spring City Town Committee looking forward to a November completion date if everything goes as planned.

Chairman of the Committee, Carl Archer said that “the library roof was just recently completed, we are now doing the browning on the inside and the order for the windows has been placed. Everything is going as planned and on schedule.”

Mr. Archer did note that the funding has been coming in “a little slowly, but we are looking to be on target for a November opening, if everything goes well.”

The Marsh Harbour Spring City Town Committee began work on the library in June of last year and work has progressed steadily.

At the commencement of the work last year Mr. Archer said that the library will be modern and not just have books, but several computer stations with high speed internet access, which will be set up and provided by Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC).

He said the Marsh Harbour Library will cost approximately $120,000 to build and is being built under a partnership between local government and the private sector.

Mr. Archer said he looks forward to seeing the library completed with the support of the community and seeing the benefits to Abaco’s children realized.
