The 2018 LaValle Flood - Moving Forward with the Library-part 2

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 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

Again, thank you for your concern, donations and interest in the recovery of the LaValle Public Library.
