We ueciueu on the Noblesville Keystone Libiaiy because the population of small
town of Noblesville neeueu to have moie facilities foi the geneial public. The City of
Noblesville, as of Nay 2u1S, only has one othei libiaiy locateu in Noblesville. We
saw the neeu to establish anothei facility to piomote leaining anu uevelopment in
chiluien as well as auults. 0ui libiaiy has a chiluien's aiea as well as a histoiy ioom.
0ui libiaiy will have new anu impioveu qualities, foi instance, a gieen ioof as well
