About Us

The Patterson Memorial Library was established and continues to exist in part through the generous donations of our patrons and benefactors.  Donations are one of the ways we are able to stay fine-free and keep our copying and fax service at donation-only status.

Corporations wishing to donate are encouraged to contact our Director.

Many Ways to Donate:

 Memorial Gift Bricks:   Purchase a brick to remember a loved one or simply as a way to support the library. Levels are $100, $250,  $500 and $1000.  Please ask the Director for details or to place an order.

You may also donate to the library for a specific purpose, such as our After-School Program for area youth, the Summer Reading Program, to purchase specific materials or technology. 

Leave a bequest in your will to the library and it's continued operation, enhancement and enrichment in the community as a community center.

One of our favorite ways to donate or leave a bequest is with the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin, a non-profit organization serving the communities of Central Wisconsin in the name of the Patterson Memorial Library.

Last but not least - there is a guilt and donation jar at the circulation desk - feel free to drop a little something in next time you're in!

We are dedicated to serving you, our stakeholders in the Village of Wild Rose and neighboring communities.  It is by your generous donations we are able to operate our library for you!  Thank you so much for supporting your library and literacy!
