Excerpt: The Dwight Foster Public Library will have a new, temporary home while the historic 93-year-old structure undergoes a substantial remodeling and expansion project beginning in 2010.

The Fort Atkinson City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved approximately $131,000 in costs associated with a plan to relocate the library's materials and services to the former Digi-Star building, located at the corner of Janesville and West Rockwell avenues.

The library will be located in the lower level of the facility, which is owned by Nasco. The space measures approximately 17,000 square feet and has ample parking, handicapped access and visibility, City Manager John Wilmet said.
