Sidewalk Tile Update From Svetha Hetzler, Library Director---August, 2016
In 2015 commemorative sidewalk tiles in front of the library were removed, because their deteriorating condition posed a safety hazard.  Tiles that could be salvaged were stored while the library explored ways to repurpose them.  The library had hoped to use the tiles in a landscaping project to enhance the sculpture "Sun Prairie" recently donated by the Friends of the Sun Prairie Public Library, but experts consulted for the project determined that the tiles could not be safely used in that way.

The library now invites donors to pick up their tiles, if they wish.  To see if your tile is available call 608-825-7323, visit the library Registration Desk or email the library director.  Please allow 24-48 hours for staff to verify that your tile is available.  You will be able to make an appointment for pickup at your convenience.  While the Library Board considers alternative ways to honor those who donated tiles, we would like to thank our patrons and donors for their patience, kindness and support as we strive to make the library an attactive and safe place for our community.
