All of the contest judges agreed that choosing one winner for each age category was not an easy task! We received so many wonderful, meaningful essays and stories, and reading all of them was such a pleasure. We congratulate the three winning authors, and applaud everyone who submitted their writings. Thank you for helping us to make this writing contest a success! We invite everyone to join us on Sunday, May 19th, at 2:00pm in the Renk Reading Room, as we celebrate all of your amazing essays and stories!

Friends of the Sun Prairie Public Library Sculpture Project

The Friends of the Sun Prairie Public Library has installed "Sun Prairie," a stainless steel sculpture with fused glass rounds, on the southeast corner of the library grounds.  On September 9, 2016, the sculpture was given to the library at a dedication ceremony featuring the Wisconsin Brass Quintet. The sculpture was designed by Dale Rogers of Haverhill, Massachusetts.  Any questions can be submitted to
