Bids to expand and renovate the public library in Mitchell have come in slightly higher than expected. The lowest bid for the project is about $2.3 million, about $123,000 over the estimate. Architect Larry Jirsa says the budget for new furniture can be adjusted to keep the project within the estimate. The expansion project will include a new meeting room, a children’s reading area, a reference area, more storage space and a new circulation desk. The project is to be completed by September 2014.
