MONROE - Books take you places you never dreamed of, but starting this month, Monroe Public Library is going to become a whole new world. For about two years, library board members and staff have been working toward an interior makeover for the library, which still has much of the same furniture as when it opened in 1996. Now, the planning and fundraising is transforming into substantial remodeling and redecorating, thanks entirely to donations.
