Earlier this year, a new sidewalk was installed in front of the library.   The commemorative tiles were removed because their deteriorating condition posed a safety hazard.  The tiles were the result of generous donors, so as many tiles as possible were placed on pallets and stored, though a few were too damaged to salvage.  We are looking into ways to repurpose the tiles for future library beautification projects if possible.

From Svetha Hetzler, Library Director---Sidewalk Tile Update. September 2015
The Sun Prairie Public Library Foundation will be contacting tile donors over the next several months to keep donors apprised of plans. We don’t want to miss anyone, but most of the records are 17 years old, and previous contact addresses may have changed.   If you or a family member donated a sidewalk tile, please fill out this Tile Donor Contact Information Form and return it to the library.  Donors who do not receive a letter by June 1, 2016, should contact Library Director Svetha Hetzler at 608-825-7323 or by email.   Contact Information Forms will also be available at the library.
