Middleton Public Library in the news:
Middleton looks for architect to rethink downtown library, city hall, senior center.  (Capital Times, 2/26/2019) 

The city of Middleton has issued a request for proposals to rethink the public properties downtown, which include the library, city hall, senior center and a number of surface parking lots. By the end of the year, the city hopes to have a plan that would expand the library, transform public spaces and potentially make way for more private development.   
Now more than ever, downtown Middleton is a desired destination, said Abby Attoun, Middleton director of community development. 
“What we’ve been seeing in downtown Middleton is an increase in land values. We’re seeing that more businesses are wanting to locate here, more people want to live here, more people want to work here in our downtown,” Attoun said.
