Marshfield Library and Community Center Capital Campaign

Marshfield Library and Community Center Capital Campaign

About

The Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library and Marshfield Community Center will be located at the corner of South Maple Avenue and Veterans Parkway in Marshfield. The complex will include:
a new, two-story library, designed for the digital age
a new Community Center located in the current library building, which will be re-purposed into a place for meetings, activities, programs and gatherings for all generations
an enclosed entrance and lobby that links both buildings
two adjacent parking lots for easy access for pedestrians, motorists, and cyclists
walkways, gardens and outdoor seating areas that unify the entire complex

A public-private partnership
The overall cost for the Library and Community Center complex is $9 million, of which $3 million will be funded by the City of Marshfield. The Building Connections Capital Campaign’s goal is to raise the remaining $6 million in private funds by 2016, which allows the entire project to be completed at one time, rather than in two phases.
