Holmen celebrates opening of new community library

New library celebrates grand opening

HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT) - After years of planning, Holmen celebrated the grand opening of its new library with the official ribbon cutting Monday.

The library is the second piece of a long-term three-step plan to improve the growing community following the construction of a new police department in 2015.

The 18,000 square foot $4 million library took more than 5 years to plan and build, with ground finally being broken in August of last year.

Village president Nancy Proctor says it's everything they'd hoped and dreamed for a long time.

"We're very pleased with it, I think it's going to be just totally accomodating for all of our residents and area residents," said Proctor.

Village leaders still hope to build a new community center near Holmen High School in the near future.
