Donor's Gift To Help Vermillion Library

Donor's Gift To Help Vermillion Library
VERMILLION, SD - The mayor of Vermillion says a sizable gift from a donor will allow the city's public library to double in size and renovate the existing space.

Mayor Jack Powell says longtime Vermillion resident Edith Siegrist has provided the city with just over $800,000 to move the project forward.

The city also had obtained a $200,000 Community Development Block Grant and had $1.4 million of second penny sales tax revenue available.

Siegrist was a member of the University of South Dakota I.D. Weeks library staff for many years. She died on July 31.

Powell says the impact of Siegrist's gift will be enjoyed by Vermillion's residents for decades to come.

Vermillion plans to break ground for the project before the end of the year.
