    When was the current children’s wing added to the Cheney library?

    • Hi Lyle, thanks for your question.
      District voters passed a bond in 1996 that provided the funds for the remodel and expansion of the Cheney Library in 1997.

  • I was there for the groundbreaking.

    Thank you to the fabulous Cheney Library Staff for organizing and promoting our 25th anniversary reception! We had amazing musicians from the newly formed Cheney Community Orchestra. Cookies, coffee and Apple cider from the Friends of the Cheney Library were enjoyed. The time capsule and commemorative quilts were some of my favorite displays. Thanks to everyone who attended to celebrate our wonderful library.
