Marshfield Library and Community Center Capital Campaign

Marshfield Library and Community Center Capital Campaign

We need your help to raise $4 million to build the new Marshfield Public Library and Community Center.

Your gift or pledge will help build connections among neighbors, friends and fellow Marshfield citizens – today and for generations to come.

The new Library and Community Center:

-- A new two-story Marshfield Public Library designed for the digital age, at the corner of South Maple Avenue and Veterans Parkway
-- The existing library building repurposed into a multi-generational Community Center
-- A light-filled enclosed entrance and lobby connecting both buildings and two parking lots
-- Easy access for pedestrians, motorists and cyclists,in the heart of Marshfield, Wisconsin

A public-private partnership:

The Building Connections Capital Campaign is for $4 million in private funds, to be added to $3 million the Marshfield Common Council committed in 2012, which will cover the costs of the $7 million project, slated to begin in 2016.
