ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Roseburg city officials held a ceremony Thursday morning to officially receive a grant from the Oregon Community Foundation.

The foundation awarded the city just over $100,000 to be used in the renovations of the former Douglas County Library building.

The funds will be used specifically in the construction of the new kids and teens library area.

Kelly Leonard, a member of the Southern Willamette Leadership Council with the Oregon Community Foundation, said several local family funds reached out and wanted to work with them to address the need at the library.

“People who live in the community who have funds through the Oregon Community Foundation -- they reached out to OCF and said these are areas -- these are specific areas that we think are important to fund.”

The Crane Creek Family Fund, Olsrud Family Fund, Robert K. and Judith A. McDermott Fund, and the Whipple Foundation Fund all contributed to the grant.

City officials hope to begin renovations this month and move in to the building in October.
