OXFORD – Interior construction of a new, young adult reading room at the Oxford Memorial Library has begun and fundraisers hope to go to bid on the second phase of the capital building project by December.
Fundraising for the $1 million campaign started in September 2005. Nearly $400,000 has been raised thus far. The first phase was paid for by a grant from the Elizabeth and George Meade Foundation.
A recent wine tasting benefit hosted by campaign volunteers raised more than $7,000.
