Current Project

The Huntsville Metropolitan Kiwanis Club believes in building big projects for the children of our community.

After spearheading the $850,000 EveryBody Can Play playground and adjoining Splash Pad at Brahan Spring Park, the Metro Kiwanis Club is ready for its next project – a brand new, state-of-the-art branch of the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library.

The new $8.4 million library will be a 40,000-square foot facility at the site of the former Grissom High School on Bailey Cove Road.

The project has garnered the support of Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle, Huntsville City Schools, Madison County Commissioner Phil Riddick and Commission Chairman Dale Strong, just to name a few.

Chairman Strong recently announced he was committing $100,000 from his operations budget to the capital campaign. Commissioner Riddick, who has championed the project since its inception four years ago, said that brings the fundraising campaign to the $1,000,000 mark.

Adding in $2 million from the City of Huntsville and an additional $2 million from Madison County, campaign organizers are 60% of the way to the goal.

The Metro Kiwanis Club has stepped up and pledged to raise $75,000 over the next five years for the new library.
