Thank you everyone who is following the unfolding saga of the rebuilding of the LaValle Public Library.
Donations of book continue to be accepted at the brown building between Hartje's Farm Market and Mittelsteadt Sports. Library personnel move those books to sort and store them until they can be catalogued and returned to the new library space.
A "GoFundMe" page has been built at https://www.gofundme.com/friends-of-lavalle-public-library. with some of the photos.
A "PayPal" page is being put into place to make the donation process easier. Checks are still being accepted at PO Box 7, LaValle WI 53941.
As for the Building:
The electrical, water and drywall has been replaced.
The interior was repainted over the weekend.
An area of exterior siding and wet insulation needed to be removed, replaced and reinstalled. That was done on Tuesday, Oct 2.
Carpeting samples have been obtained and bids for installation are being sought.
The computers are with South Central Library System's IT staff, where they are being checked over. The SCLS staff will store them until we have the tables, desks, etc needed to reinstall them at the new space.
When we start the reconstruction process at the recovered space, many volunteers will be needed. If you would like to be contacted with the work dates for volunteering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, thank you for your concern, donations and interest in the recovery of the LaValle Public Library.
Thanks to everyone who has helped as the LaValle Library Board, along with the Village Board, has taken the steps needed to get the library open soon.
At the present time, Reedsburg Public Library is processing our holds.
Returns can be made at any South Central Library System location. These include Reedsburg, Baraboo, Portage and many others. A complete list is on the SCLS website that includes their location and hours.
Monetary donations can be made to "Friends of the LaValle Public Library" at PO Box 7, LaValle WI 53941
Book donations should be held until we get ready and able to process them for the collection. If this is not possible, a donation location has been established at a building between Hartje Farm Store and Mittelsteadt Sports, Hwy 33, North of LaValle.
Any other questions or concerns can be directed to Cindi Morgan at 985-7571 or email@example.com.
Anyone wishing to joing the Friends of the LaValle Public Library can contact Pegg at email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Again, Thank you for your love and concern for LaValle and its Public Library.

We were done in about an hour and everything is safe at its new location.
Please note: Book Donations can resume at the Hartje/Schierl Storage Location - next to Hartje Farm Market. The sign is back out to indicate just where to leave them!
The Library is closed until we are back up and running.
