Library & Community Center Project
The Library & Community Center project will build a new library at the corner of South Maple and Veterans' Parkway and the existing library will be repurposed into a multi-generational Community Center. Between the buildings will be an enclosed connection with improved parking and pedestrian access. This center of community services and activity is included in the Marshfield's Capital Improvement Plan. The project has been developing over a period of years with a ground breaking target year of 2015. The links below will take you through some of the most recent efforts.
The committee is open to receiving any comments, ideas or concerns that you might wish to share with them. Sub-committees for Marketing & Communications, Funding/Capital Campaign and Architecture & Design have been formed. If you are interested in being involved with any of these sub-committees, please contact:
Jason Angell at (715) 486-2074 or
Lori Belongia at (715) 389-2745
