OVERDUE: North Angelo Branch Library Renovation Campaign

Donation Opportunity for North Branch Library

The Library's Overdue campaign is in full swing. This million-dollar effort seeks to fully overhaul and update San Angelo's North Branch Library location for the first time in over 45 years. Renovations include the following:

  • ADA-compliance throughout the facility;
  • a generous 1500 square-foot expansion;
  • staff offices;
  • a fresh new technology center where patrons meet in groups or work independently using public computers and internet service to work on homework, job searches, creative projects, and more.

Interested in supporting this much-needed renovation? Donate at the San Angelo Area Foundation.
