A new 6,000-square foot library sounded too good to be true.
And it was.
With the stipulations attached to the Tennessee Department of Agriculture library grant awarded to the city of LaFollette, plans for a new library have been halted.
Following the announcement of a $200,000 library grant, LaFollette Mayor Mike Stanfield learned that a $1million loan was not an option-it was a requirement.
The plan was to move the community center to West LaFollette School and renovate the current community center for the library.
