“Now is where the real work
begins,” Johns said, noting that
the group still has to hire the
full-time librarian and two part-
time employees it budgeted for.
“We need to plan and provide
what we said we would which
is a full service library for the
community,” she added.
Th e Friends of the Mildred
Whipple Library don’t plan to
open the doors again until Jan-
uary of 2019 but this summer,
they’ll begin making good on
the seat two years ago, losing by
a handful of votes, came in with
just under 20 percent of the vote

Two volunteers, with the help
of grant funding, will provide
a summer reading program;
something the community
didn’t have last year as the li-
brary sat locked. Th e library
board, made up mostly of peo-
ple who had campaigned for the
tax district and served as volun-
teers for the Friends of the Li-
brary group, will begin planning
meetings, open to the public.
According to Johns, there’s
also talk of eventually incorpo-
rating a visitor information cen-
ter in the library for the string
of tourists who come through
town asking about covered
bridges and good lunch spots.
Th e city of Drain will be pro-
viding maintenance for the
building as well as handling the
utilities and internet but there’s
still along list for the library
board to contend with. So long,
in fact, Johns said they’ll be
meeting with their attorney and
the city in the coming weeks to
see, what exactly, the next step
“We passed it,” she said. “It
was so exciting and the it was
like, ‘Ok what’s next?’”
