MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – After a summer project, Chapin Memorial Library has a new roof.

According to an online post from the city of Myrtle Beach, the new roof cost $222,600.

“The old roof at Chapin Memorial Library leaked badly and had not been replaced in 20-plus years,” the post states.

Officials say the original part of the 25,000 square foot library dates to 1949, but it has been expanded through the years.
