JANESVILLE — The Hedberg Public Library is looking to undergo a facelift over the next couple years.
The Transformation Project will revitalize the library and position it to serve the community more efficiently, said Bryan McCormick, library director.
One aspect of the project would be to have the reference desk and the circulation desk in a centralized area.
“Patrons can come in and only have one place to have their questions answered,” McCormick said. “They won’t have to go to multiple places. We will have a centralized service point for patrons.”
The programming room would be renovated to accommodate more people and programs. McCormick said the room could be used for meetings, training sessions and community events.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- If your grandparents lived and grew up in Walworth County, it’s a good bet your ancestors would feel right at home at Old World Wisconsin, the outdoor living history museum located just south of Eagle.
Do you have German, English, Irish, Swedish, Danish or Norwegian heritage? Old World has separate “villages” representing the traditions of these ethnic groups who settled in the state. The housing and daily life of these settlers in 19th-century Wisconsin gives today’s visitors a sense of their past.
STATELINE NEWS--At Bushel & Peck’s Local Market in downtown Beloit, some of the most popular items sold -- cherry bomb hot sauce, cherry lavender jelly, classic dill pickles and pickled beets -- are made in the market’s own preservation kitchen.
The foods prepared in that kitchen, which began operating in 2010, fit in with the locally sourced milk, cheese, meats and more offered in the market. And many of the finished products, like the hot sauce, also are used in food served at the market’s café.
