Library Building Project Public Information Session

By Beth Blahut

The New Glarus Library Board, Village Board and Shepherd of the Hills congregation are considering a purchase agreement for the parcel next to Candy Cane Park as a potential site of the new library building. Architects at Dimension-IV have drawn up a concept plan that includes expanding public green space, making the sledding hill public property and building a new community library.

All are welcome to stop by an “Open House” on Saturday, May 22nd, from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at Candy Cane Park.

This is an opportunity to learn more, ask questions and contribute to informal discussions regarding the preliminary plans. Library Board members and library staff will be available to share information about the plans and gather feedback, and there will also be feedback forms you may submit anonymously if desired. Feedback will be reviewed by library and Village trustees and staff.

Rain date: Sunday May 23, 2:00-5:00
