The library in Downtown Dickinson is growing, and the resources are being put together to meet the communities needs going forward.

The Dickinson Public Area Library Director, Rita Ennen, told the Dickinson City Commission on Tuesday they have found an architect to help with putting together designs for expanding and renovating the existing library,

The library is talking with Bartlett and West out of Bismark, but the two sides are still in the early stages and are working on putting together a contract.

Earlier this Spring the library foundation purchased the former Arc thrift store in Downtown Dickinson.

The property is right next to the library and is ideal for future expansion.

Ennen said the original library was built in 1908 and has been been renovated four times, but a fifth one is desperately needed.

“We have grown immensely since then. We are doing three story times every week. We do lots of STEAM activities. We have LEGO Club. We have activities for all ages. Most of those things are being done in areas that were not designed for that activity,” said Ennen.

Ennen said there were about 88,000 visits to the library last year.
