CLEAR SPRING - An open house will mark the first anniversary of the Washington County Free Library, Leonard P. Snyder branch, on Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

Vigorous fund-raising efforts helped the project reach its $726,000 goal needed for the 8,000-square-foot building, which is located centrally on the campus of the three schools west of Clear Spring.

The L.P. Snyder fund gave $300,000 and the Washington County Commissioners added $200,000. The rest has come from individuals, businesses, benefits and churches.

The next big event on the horizon for the library will be the dedication of a new set of flagpoles for the front of the building, said library committee member Margaret Cornett at the Monday night Town Council meeting.

"There is no set date yet for that dedication," she said.

The flagpoles were bought with gifts from Wilson Ruritan Club, $2,500; Mary Jane and Don Spickler, $1,000; and Bill Ditto, $500, Cornett said.

Town officials donated a Clear Spring town flag to the library Monday night.

The Clear Spring Mayor and Town Council are planning to conduct a town meeting at the library building in the near future.
