Placeholder Image
The orange barriers in front of Magness Library have likely caught the attention of motorists for the past month. The cost to restore the library will catch some eyes as well, as a $100,000 estimate has been provided.The estimate is for work to repair a broken column and protect the building’s limestone facade from future damage.aIn mid-January, a decorative piece of one of the front columns broke away, fell to the ground, and shattered into smaller pieces. The incident prompted library officials to section off a large area in front of the library with orange barriers and contact the Tennessee Historical Preservation Society.
