NEW GLARUS - Funds pledged to build a new library on New Glarus' west side have reached nearly $650,000 as of last week, making it eligible to receive $1 million for the project from the village. The village board voted 5 to 2 on June 5 to borrow $1 million and to contribute $50,000 in cash for the new building. Before borrowing, the capital campaign had to acquire $500,000 in pledged donations.
