Planning for the Future
The Sun Prairie Public Library, along with FEH Design, is engaged in a planning effort to assess the facility and space needs required to deliver current and future services.  A public Advisory Task Force has been formed and charged with identifying needs and options, evaluating potential solutions and making recommendations to the Library Board.  The first Advisory Task force meeting was held Tuesday, May 29. Advisory Task Force meetings are open to the public. The next meeting is scheduled for June 19th at 6:30 p.m.

In an effort to reduce barriers and increase access, the Sun Prairie Public Library Board recently adopted changes to our Circulation Policy.  The Sun Prairie Public Library no longer charges daily overdue fines for most materials*.  We hope these changes will increase library visits, and access for all our patrons.  Thank you for using YOUR library!
*Specialized collections such as Buzz Books, Rental DVDs, Video Games, Technology, and Storytime Kits will still be charged daily overdue fines.  Replacement fees will continue to be charged for lost or damaged items.
