Friends of the Houston-Love Memorial Library met last night with Mayor Pat Thomas to discuss the possible location for Dothan’s new library and the cost surrounding the structure.
Mayor Thomas proposed the 200 block of Foster Street as the site for the 60-thousand square foot structure.
He challenged the library board to raise 4- million dollars this year when that happens the city can kick in 10- million.
Mayor Thomas says a new library could symbolize Dothan.
He says about 500 people attend Houston-Love Memorial Library a day and expects a new library would double that--and boost downtown business.
