Building Project

A Message from the Library Board President

August 2023

Are you wondering what’s up with the new library?  Library Building Committee members are still hard at work establishing procedures, exploring funding, and developing capital campaign strategies and materials.

At our June 20th Community Informational meeting, some community members expressed the desire to keep the library on Main Street, and concerns were voiced about traffic congestion and pedestrian safety at the proposed site on the corner of Highway 27 and Mills Street. Although we had met previously with school officials and the WI DOT, who both were okay with the proposed site, we decided to evaluate some new alternatives which have become available and re-evaluate some ones considered in prior studies as possible locations.

Our intent is to share findings with the community once sufficient information has been gathered. Please keep in mind our goal is to provide the best possible long-term solution for the library facility and the Village of Cadott. 


If you’d like to learn how you can participate in this exciting opportunity of bringing a new library to our community, please let Samma Johnson know.

In the meantime, keep watching for library updates and events on Facebook and on the library website. Samma and staff are ready to help patrons find information or select a great book or DVD. Remember, there are story times, book club, adult coloring and more offered at our library. Stop by and check out the new games, puzzles and sports equipment that were added recently.

Regular Library Board Meetings are held 2nd Monday at 4:30 PM, at the Library or virtually.

Individuals who wish to attend the meeting can join Virtually. The library is utilizing Microsoft Teams for virtual meeting space, which may require you to download a desktop software or use Microsoft Edge as your browser. Please test your connection ahead of time.
