We are working with our mortgage holder,
River City, to satisfy our outstanding
debts and release the property to them so
that our city might benefit from the right
type of tenant or owner in the important
location on our waterfront. We sincerely
appreciate the cooperative efforts made by
River City in this matter.
The Chattanooga Public Library has
expressed an interest in housing the
collection itself on a permanent basis.
However, that downtown building must
resolve its asbestos problem before such a
move can be considered. This is anticipated
to be approximately September, 2017.
The Board and staff are greatly
appreciative of the many donors,
corporations, volunteers, and hours of work
by so many interested in cataloging,
digitizing, and preserving the collection.
This work continues under the guidance of
Marie Bourassa Cullis, Curator.
The Board sincerely hopes that this
situation will resolve itself in such a way
as to allow both citizens and visitors to
enjoy the excellent collection in the
