Bentonville Public Library is making strides towards its expansion project thanks to generous contributions from community partners investing in the library's future.
- Building out: The BPL expansion's planned addition would increase the current 38,500 sq. ft. facility to 61,475 sq. ft., providing the space necessary to increase the library's collection, add more rooms for gathering, and make possible a wider variety of activities to engage the community.
- Community investment: The city is contributing $4.5m to the project, and a generous $500,000 grant from the Alice L. Walton Foundation brings the library's fundraising to nearly 79% of its $16.75m goal.
