Groundbreaking for new library
In a project that started with the purchase of the property in 2009 and has had many hiccups and snags along the way, the construction of the new Magoffin County Public Library (MCPL) is officially underway.
Construction on the new structure is expected to take one year and it is anticipated to be completed and open to the public by late summer 2018.
