Lomira Public Library to hold grand opening. (Fond du Lac Reporter, 4/19/2011)
Excerpt: Lomira residents, donors, friends and supporters are encouraged to attend the grand opening of the Lomira Public Library at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, May 7.
Welcoming remarks are scheduled for 2 p.m.
Major donors, including representatives from the Windhover Foundation of the Quad/Graphics Corporation, the Elaine and Robert Middleton Foundation and the family of Joanne Guay, will be on hand to view the new library, according to a Friends of Lomira Public Library news release.
The Windhover Foundation provided the cornerstone gift of $800,000 for the new Lomira Library, which enabled the Friends to progress with plans for the new facility.
The Guay Family will officially open the Joanne Guay Children's Corner, which features a "reading pond" and huge stuffed animals to "ride and read."
The Elaine and Robert Middleton Foundation sponsored the adult reading area, which features a tower window that looks over Lomira meadowland.
The new library, located at 427 S. Water St., replaces the library located on Main Street for more than 40 years.
