We could not have done it without you.
Our remodeling project begins Dec. 4. Over the next six months, the library will make necessary upgrades to improve our space and allow us to serve you better. Planned improvements include a new entrance, lower shelves and a more open floor plan, additional meeting and conference rooms, expanded areas for children and teens, a new computer lab, and much more. There's a lot to do before construction begins. We've temporarily relocated our older fiction books and they will be unavailable for checkout until further notice. As always, we are happy to request books from other libraries — just ask a librarian and we can get them for you.
New fiction, large print and paperback books will not be affected. We ask that you please bear with us as we make these much-needed changes. For more details about the library's remodeling project, visit our website or pick up an information handout at the Circulation Desk.
Come to the library on Dec. 2 and make simple gifts for the people you love. Northern Expressions Arts Collective will join us for this free program for kids at 11:30 a.m. Sign up by calling (715) 394-8866.
We will close at 6 p.m. Wednesday and will be closed until 9 a.m. Nov. 27. We hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
