UPDATE 08/04/2021: Because Sauk County is currently experiencing substantial community spread of COVID-19, we are following CDC guidelines and returning to masking for all staff and patrons effective immediately. The library board will reevaluate this decision monthly based on Sauk County Public Health data.
The good news is that, because we are masking, we believe we can safely keep the library running "normally," with seating, the Friends book sale, restrooms, Archives, and the Community Room open to the public. We will continue to post updates here and on our Facebook page: facebook.com/sglibrary. Thank you for your continued support!
