In April 2011, the Helen Matthes Library, the City of Effingham, and Fifth Third Bank announced the plans for the new location of the Helen Matthes Library at the 3rd Street location of the Fifth Third Bank. Fundraising is underway for the $3.5 million renovation of the building.
Please take a moment to view this presentation about the new library plans. This presentation will walk you through many of the key features of the design. We’ve also prepared a short video as well that takes you on a walking tour of the library.
