Plan B for Viroqua Center/Public Library Project Unveiled
Viroqua Center second option unveiled to community. (Viroqua County Broadcaster, 12/15/2011)
Excerpt: The second proposal, presented by Terry Martin of PSA Dewberry of Monroe, included complex design elements including a multi-angled grass roof and the use of two stories in three different sections of the development. The proposal calls for a new library to be built north of Western Technical College in Viroqua and an arts center to be built on the southeast side of the college. The college and all buildings would be joined together by shared space that would include an internet café and a reception lounge featuring a fireplace.
The Viroqua Center is a community center project spun out of the McIntosh Memorial Library's Library Task Force. The library is planning to construct a new facility and it has sought partners from the community. Through numerous meetings an idea has developed to joining the new library with Western and additional space for community arts.
