Culver's Donates Facility for New Prairie du Sac Library

View of children's area in current facility

to May 22 Sauk Prairie Eagle article, "Culver's donates downtown building to PdS for library; village will rename facility after late Ruth Culver".

Excerpt: The Prairie du Sac Public Library not only will get a new home when Culver's Franchising Systems Inc. moves out of its downtown location later this year, it will get a new name.

During a groundbreaking ceremony for the burger franchise's new headquarters in Prairie du Sac's North Ridge Office Park on May 21, Lea Culver announced the company would donate its building at 540 Water St. to the village for its overcrowded library.

The library will be renamed the Ruth Culver Community Library in honor of the franchise's co-founder, who died last year.

The 11,000 square-foot, two-story space is more than twice as big as the Prairie du Sac Public Library's current location on Park Avenue across the street from the Bank of Prairie du Sac.

I think I'll celebrate with a double Culver's Deluxe. And what's Middleton's flavor of the day? (Since it's Friday, it must be Cookie Dough Craving. Guess I'll have to order a Concrete instead.)
