Community Volunteers Tackle Library Bathroom

Edward Michaels, Facilitator for the AF Knotts Friends of the Library Bathroom Project, headed up a team to demolish the former library lavatories inorder to upgrade to a handicapped-accessible unisex restroom meeting all state and local codes.

Pictured here on March 4, 2011 are from the left: FOL Larry Cohan; Edward Michaels; Tommy Sholes, Y-Town Councilman; FOL Chris Fineout; FOL Jean Holbrook; Norm Shannihan, Y-Town Councilman.

The project is being funded by Friends of AF Knotts Public Library and the Yankeetown-Inglis Women’s Club with generous community support.  To see more photos of this project click HERE.
