Rosholt Branch Library Offered Anonymous Donation...with Strings Attached

Link to February 3 Stevens Point Journal article, "Library could get anonymous boost".

Excerpt: The Rosholt branch of the Portage County Public Library could get an anonymous $50,000 boost -- but only if library expands at its current location.

Theresa Hartvig, the village's clerk/treasurer, said the donor requested the money only be used if the current location at the Village Hall is remodeled and expanded.

Many people want to keep and expand the library at its current location to meet growing needs. Space concerns, coupled with increased use, have village officials looking at either expansion or a new location.

A recent assessment revealed a space between 5,000 and 5,600 square feet would be needed to serve the community's needs.
