New Waunakee Public Library Opens its Doors for their
Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting, August 1st at 2:00-6:00pm
Over a decade of planning and hard work by countless community members and area leaders has resulted in a brand-new, state-of-the-art 40,000 square foot public library in the Village of Waunakee. We are proud to invite you to the ribbon cutting and grand opening for the new Waunakee Public Library on Thursday, August 1 at 2:00 PM.
The new library, located at 201 North Madison Street, transforms a previously blighted and contaminated alloy foundry property into a community amenity and gathering place. The Village of Waunakee worked closely with national, state, and county government units to purchase the former Waunakee Alloy property, clean up the contaminated site, and build a unique "library in a park" that takes advantage of the site's scenic location on Six Mile Creek and close connection to downtown.
The new library building features much more space for visitors to browse, read, and gather with family, friends and neighbors. The building features a Community Hall for large gatherings and events, four additional meeting rooms, nine study rooms, and plentiful public areas to read, sit, work, and play. Waunakee’s past is given recognition through “History Hall.” A new trail connection along Six Mile Creek brings front-and-center the physical beauty of the community. Artwork crafted by local artists adorns the walls. …and so much more!
Please join us on August 1 to celebrate. Tours will be given during an open house which follows the brief ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:00 PM. The Open House will run until 6:00 PM.
The library will be open at 9 a.m. on Friday, August 2 for business.
