The DMR library is well used by the community.
The library currently has over 2,200 books and over 750 videos all donated.
The library averages over 100 books and videos being checked out each month.
The library has expanded to occupy all the reasonable available space in the Community Center.
We've broken it into three phases:
Phase 1 - 10'x 16' Library Annex and completion $1,600
Phase 2 - Deck for Reading / Visiting / Music
Phase 3 - 10'x 10' Reading room / Work room / Library expansion
June 16, 2015 - The Friends of the Library were at it again! They finished sheet rocking the inside of the main
building and put of the ceiling. They cut down some donated bookshelves and got them ready to go. The shelves
will be installed after the walls are painted. Linda and Dale Kitchens donated the shelves.
Thanks so much to the Kitchens!
June 6, 2015 - A a group of volunteers installed a donated door to the main library annex building. Ray Queen,
Sam House, Bill Flanders and Willis LeJeune spent most of the day working on the project with great results. One of
the next things our volunteers are gong to do is to pull the current siding off the inside the building, replace it with sheet
rock, then tape and paint it. Looking good!
June 10, 2015 - The DMR Library Annex is proceeding well. To date over $3,500 has been raised or pledged plus many contributions in-kind along with
plenty of sweat equity. Ron and Tracey Davis has moved the two purchased buildings to the DMR Community Center area. The road crew assisted in
leveling the ground for the buildings and Chuck Smith helped level the buildings. Sam House, Ray Queen, and Willies LeJeune have installed the
Higginbotham's (HBC) donated door and have sheet rocked the walls. After the interior of the building is completed and the donated book shelves from
Linda and Dale Kitchens are installed
work will begin on the deck.

July 30, 2015 - I noticed activity at the DMPOA Library Annex building so stopped and checked to see what progress had been made. The Friends of the Library have been
remodelling the inside of one of the units. The ceiling has been completed already and the walls have been taped and textured. Today I found Bill Flanders busy painting the walls. The
next step is apparently laying the floors. While visiting with Bill, I noticed several people using the main library in the Community Center. It's great to see so many people getting
involved in community projects like this. Thanks to everyone involved!
August 21, 2015 - A look into the main building of the library annex showed how much
work has been done! Bill has finished painting the floor and volunteers helped position the
shelving. What remains to be done? Some more shelves will be added and trim will be put
around the windows and seams of the panelling and corners. The second building is being
used as a workroom and storage room for the time being. Stop by and take a look!

May 16, 2016 - Work was begun on the first ramp
for the library annex buildings. Thanks Bill. Eddie,
Russ, Janette and Chuck for all the work.
May 20, 2016 - The ramp construction was continued
by Russ, Bill, Willis and Chuck. Construction was led
by Willis. Great job guys!!!
Feb - March 2017 - Bill Flanders led the placement of
a new door into the unfinished library building. It was
quite an undertaking and just the next step in making
this building a useful part of the DMPOA Library.
Thanks to Bill Flanders, Chuck Smith and Roy Cantu
for their help on this project!
