Many changes have been taking place in the recent past as well. The Black River Falls Public Library has actively sought and received grants and other funding from community organizations to update and improve the library. Recent grant-funded projects include the new Teen Area that was created by rearranging the children’s area and adding new furniture in March of last year, and an “Internet Cafe,” complete with a plumbed Keurig and new flooring, which was funded in part by a donation from the local Lions Club. Another grant was used to purchase flip-top tables and stackable chairs to make the program room more customizable for different event types, including book clubs, job counseling, tutoring, and library-hosted programs.

The Black River Falls Public Library is an important space for all in the community. Here’s to the next 20 years -- and the next 143!
