Library on the way

Local officials break ground Friday on construction for the new Krum Public Library, which will be built on the east side of the current library at 803 E. McCart St. The library is being built from a $1.3 million bond package passed by voters in May 2013 and is expected to be completed in the spring or summer of 2017. Future fundraisers will help with the cost of furnishing and shelving the facility. Helping to break ground are, from left, library board members Donna O’ Dania and Bonnie Barthold; Denton County Commissioner Andy Eads; Kent Sears; Kelly Ring, library board chairwoman; Donna Pierce, library director; Krum Mayor Ron Harris, Krum City Council members Justin Diviney and Austin Petersen; and Sandy Clere, president of Krum Friends of the Library.
