RCU Foundation donates $200,000 to Mondovi Public Library

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) – The Royal Credit Union Foundation announces that it has donated $200,000 to the Mondovi Public Library for the construction of a new library adjacent to the existing library.

“The RCU Foundation’s generous donation for the new Mondovi Public Library Building Fund is so much more than just numbers on a check to us – albeit a lot of numbers!” Laura Toone, acting director of the Mondovi Public Library, said. “We envision the new library as a community center and an elevation to our whole way of life, and we are extremely grateful to the RCU Foundation for helping us achieve this.”

The Mondovi Public Library is intended to be a resource that people can go to for various daily needs.

“Many small town libraries are more than a place to get a book,” said John Sackett, chairman of the RCU Foundation board. “We are honored to support the Mondovi Public Library because their community focus aligns so closely with our goal of making a positive impact.”

According to RCU’s press release, construction is expected to begin next year. The new library is expected to open in 2024.
