New Sign at Elaine I. Sprauve Library Eliminates Museum Confusion

Thanks to donations by members of the Friends of Elaine I. Sprauve Library, the library unveiled a new sign last week, above.

The Elaine I. Sprauve Library continues to spruce up its distinguished appearance.

Librarian Carol McGuinness unveiled a brand new sign on the library grounds which was donated by Friends of Elaine I. Sprauve Library members Jean Gibbs and the Wasilchak family.

The sign was designed by Mark Hansen and installed by Richard Bates. The new wooden sign should silent the complaints McGuinness heard often regarding the old sign.

“Everyone got mad and would complain because the old sign said ‘Library and Museum,’ and there is no museum here,” said the librarian.
With the false advertising now removed, McGuinness hopes to hear only compliments about the new sign.

“It’s really gorgeous,” said McGuinness. “We’re very happy with the new sign and we’re going to do some landscaping around it now to make the area even prettier.”
