Tri-North Builders began construction of the Pinney Library space within the Royster Corners development on Cottage Grove Road this spring. Foundation staff are offering monthly tours of the new library to donors. Tour dates are: Friday, June 7; Friday, July 12; and Friday, August 16.

All tours begin at 3:30 p.m. Hard hats (available on site) and close-toed shoes are required. The library is located at 516 Cottage Grove Road, Suite 101. Parking is available on Royster Oaks Drive or Pinney Street. Please RSVP to or call 608.266.6318.

The library is expected to be completed and open to the public in spring 2020. Visit to view current project photos.

Buy a Rack, Leave Tracks: Looking for a special way to usher in the new Pinney Library? Rack Raising is the foundation’s community- based fundraising campaign for customized bicycle racks outside the library. For a $1,000 gift, you’ll be able to choose a message or names to appear on a metal U-shaped bike rack outside the library. It’s a great opportunity for a family, business, organization or book club, and $750 of the amount is tax-deductible. Only 64 racks are available, so fill out our order form soon to reserve your sponsorship.

Volunteers Sought: Help our team share information about The Capital Campaign for a New Pinney Library and Rack Raising by volunteering at community events this summer. We’ll be making appearances at Ride the Drive on June 2 and Wisconsin Bike Week events June 2-8, plus at several festivals later in the summer. Email to sign up.
