The Sauk City Public Library is moving to the George Culver Community Library!
Our new location is only a few blocks away, at 615 Phillips Blvd, still in the heart of Sauk City. We are excited about the new opportunities that this location will afford us and all the ways it will help us better serve the community. Our move is in progress right now, and we should be finished before too long!
This is where you come in. We invite you to peruse a selection of furniture, antiques, books and collectibles. By purchasing any of these items, you help us progress with our move and invest in our continued service to Sauk City and the rest of South Central Wisconsin.
Bidding begins on Thursday, June 4, 2020 at 12:00 pm and continues until Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at 12:00 pm.
The auction is open to everyone, but all items must be picked up in person, as nothing will be shipped. Therefore, before you bid, please make certain that you can easily travel to Sauk City, Wisconsin.
If you win an item, we will work with you to figure out the best time for you to pick it up from our present location at 515 Water St.
Thank you so much for all of your kind and generous support. We look forward to serving you better than ever!
Here are some of the children’s books that deal with race, racism and activism at the Sauk City Library. Place one on hold in the catalog or call us to check one out.
Due to the pandemic as well as the move to our new building, the Library and the Friends of the Library are not accepting donations of used materials for the foreseeable future. We have a considerable excess of items at this time and no more space to store them, nor do we have the staff time to manage handling them. We appreciate all past donations in support of the Library and look forward accepting donations of items in excellent condition at some point in the future.
Thank you for your consideration.
