Point Roberts needs a new library, as argued in the top link on the right.

Substantial progress has already been made: Fundraising started early in 2012. Less than four years later local individuals, businesses, and other friends of Point Roberts have contributed over $540,000. David King, architect, has prepared a conceptual plan and feasibility study for the renovation of the old fire hall adjacent to the historic community center building. These materials are also available on the right.

Frequently asked questions and several other items that may be useful for occasional reference are also available through the links on the right.
