The Irvin L. Young Memorial Library is embarking on a Capital Campaign to raise $2,500,000 which, with $3,000,000 from the City of Whitewater and library reserves, will fund an expansion adding 4,400 additional square feet, and a renovation of the existing space. The transformed library will:

  • Offer expanded early learning areas, including play centers and places to gather
  • Offer engaging teen and pre-teen spaces
  • Offer an expanded Makerspace area and upgraded technology to allow people to create, design, and learn 21st-century skills
  • Offer expanded large and small meeting, study, and collaboration spaces
  • Provide much more natural light and upgraded facilities
  • Offer expanded areas of informal seating for reading, studying, and socializing
  • Offer outdoor tables and spaces for community members to utilize the Internet even when the library is not open
  • Provide additional accessibility to materials and the opportunity for community residents to learn the latest technology, among other valuable skills
