New home for Sargent Branch Library

   The Bay City Public Library is gearing up for more exciting changes to its Sargent Branch Library location.
   The Sargent Branch Library will be temporarily closed starting Oct. 14 for about three months as it moves into its new location.
   Bay City Library Director Samantha Denbow obtained a $54,000 grant from the Tocker Foundation for the library to receive new furnishings throughout the new building.
   She and a committee from the Friends of the Sargent Library worked together with an architect provided by the Tocker Foundation to develop a color scheme and select all new shelves, tables, and chairs.
   “I am proud of the support the community has shown the library throughout the years,” said Denbow.
   “This has been a dream of so many for a long time, and it’s happening because all of the different organizations – the County, the City, the Friends – and the community are coming together for this one great purpose.”
   Matagorda County has designated part of the former VFW Hall, at 20305 FM 457, to serve as the library.
