Brown County Public Library East Branch's Days Numbered?

Brown Co. Library considers moving east-side branch to Bellevue. (Green Bay Press-Gazette, 8/17/2013)

Excerpt:  The East Branch facility, which has been at 2255 Main St. for 31 years, would relocate to the growing suburb under an idea being discussed by the Brown County Library Board. Members said they are concerned about conditions in and around East Branch, which occupies leased space near the East Town Mall.

“I can’t see us staying in that location, with that building,” board member Terry Watermolen said. About three years remain on the lease.

Issues with the building over the past year include a leaking roof, a problem with lights and parking lot maintenance, Library Director Lynn Stainbrook said. Meanwhile, calls are growing for a library branch in the Bellevue-Ledgeview area, which has seen significant residential and commercial growth in recent years.
