Story Builder Campaign for the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library Expansion

About the Fund



WHO?


The public library has been part of Eau Claire since 1858. For over 160 years, it has given members a chance to discover, explore, and connect.

WHAT?


We are now raising money so that the library can help everyone in our city. The Story Builder Campaign will get $11.5 million from the city, but we still need to raise $7 million to reach the goal.

WHAT DO WE NEED?


• A third floor
• A 200-seat event space
• Larger children’s programming space
• Rooms for meetings, big and small
• Quiet places for studying
• Rooms for tweens and teens
• More bookshelves
• More computer stations
• A learning lab for all ages
• A children’s play-and-learn space
• New restrooms
• And so much more

WHEN?


The Story Builder Campaign will start in September 2019 and end in 2020. Work would start in 2021.
