Dunkerton getting state funding for new library


DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The City of Dunkerton is getting $98,000 to help build a new library.

The funds were approved by the Vision Iowa Board on Thursday. 

Vision Iowa Board Chairwoman, Regenia Bailey says, “Dunkerton’s new library will not only move it out of the floodplain, but will also provide a larger area to hold materials.  It will be a wonderful asset to the community.”

The total cost for the new library is $545,925 and Dunkerton requested $111,905.  

The project includes an adult reading room, computer area, two restrooms, large circulation desk area, 1,534-square-foot walk-out basement, children’s reading area, program room with a capacity of 30 people, and a larger area to hold library materials.

The award is contingent upon the completion of fundraising in 120 days.

According to the Dunkerton Library website, $484,308.95, has been raised as of December 23, 2008.

The latest grant is part of funding that Vision Iowa received from the I-Jobs program.
