Fort Atkinson Moves Ahead on Library Project

Link to March 18 Daily Union Online article, "Fort hires architect for library".

Excerpt: After seven years of planning, the Dwight Foster Public Library received council permission Sept. 16 to move forward with a proposed $5.5 million remodeling and expansion project.

The council's approval authorized library staff to begin fundraising efforts to raise 55 percent, or $3 million, of the total pricetag for remodeling the existing 21,000 square feet of space and adding 12,000 square feet of new space.
