We have wonderful news to share with you. At the end of June, the Friends of the Hot Springs Library was able to pay off the 5 year loan on the Hot Springs Library building at 170 Bridge Street.
Our intention from the beginning of this quest, was to turn over the ownership of the building from Friends of Hot Springs Library to Madison County. The County has been paying down the loan these past 4 1/2 years by making the monthly mortgage payments, taking care of all maintenance and all staffing costs. FHSL was able to use our fundraising efforts to pay down the principal.
Because of the cooperation between the Friends of Hot Springs Library and Madison County, and the incredible generosity of you, our amazing community,
We Were Able to Pay Off the Loan!!!!!
On Monday, August 12, 2021 we met at the Hot Springs Library to formally turn over the deed to our Madison County Commissioners.
