ExcerptWhile the groundbreaking ceremony for the new library is scheduled for 5 p.m. Oct. 20 at the building site at 540 Water St., Jennifer Endres Way, the library's director, said work already has begun on the building.

"Miron Construction began working on the project on the 19," Endres Way said. "They began doing some interior work and we'll probably see some exterior work coming up the next week or two."

At its regular meeting Sept. 21, the Prairie du Sac Library Board approved reallocating some donated money to add more windows to the project, expanding patrons' view of the Wisconsin River at the new site.

Endres Way said Miron Construction likely will wrap up the outside work before winter, and spend most of the colder months concentrating on the building's interior.

Endres Way said the total project is going to cost about $2.38 million. The funds committed to date total just over $2.3 million, of that $875,000 is from the village and the rest is fundraising dollars.

"We're just shy of $50,000 away from what we'd like to have," Endres Way said

$50,000? That's about what we need.
