Madison Public Library is planning a new library and community facility at Reindahl Park. The planned “Imagination Center at Reindahl Park” will not be an ordinary library. It will be a transformational space designed and directed by the northeast Madison community.

The Imagination Center at Reindahl Park will be a place for the community to gather and learn. It will be a safe place for social interaction, civic engagement, and cultural expression. The center will focus on holistic health and expanding economic opportunities for library visitors.

 

Public Information Meeting: January 27, 2022

The community was invited to see preliminary designs for the new Imagination Center at Reindahl Park, 6-8 p.m., Jan. 27, 2022, via Zoom. Community members were invited to share comments, ask questions and engage fully with the City on the proposed preliminary designs.
