15 Years @ Your Library

On January 26, 1998, the new Reedsburg Public Library opened at 370 Vine Street. Efforts by the community to build a new library were rewarded when the new 15,400 square foot state-of-the-art library, containing more shelf space, a more spacious reading area, more computers and meeting rooms, opened. The single floor structure with special rooms for the children’s story hour, local history research and meeting rooms, were a much needed change from the crowded conditions of the old library. The first week the library opened, 5,745 people visited the building. New records were set every month that first year and have been broken several times since. The library still has that new feel each time you come in, but a lot has changed in the last fifteen years, from the types of resources we offer to the limited spaces from all of the new shelving that has been added.  Stop in and discover everything your library has to offer.
