Sedalia Public Library

What started as a simple repair has become a significant renovation for the 102-year-old building that houses the Sedalia Public Library.

The Sedalia Democrat reports that work on the library started as simple $4,000 repair. But additional problems led to a project involving the renovation of the structure's southwestern corner, new paint and pier work on the building's corner and front section.
