The Remodel 

Many thanks to the support of the
Three Lakes Public Library Foundation 
and all those who donated to make this project possible!

Our Story

The Demmer Design and Construction Committee began working with Hoffman Design, Planning & Construction on the designs for renovation and expansion of our existing 1971 building during the summer of 2017.

The Demmer had served the community well for over 45 years, but it was time to give the building a refresh.

In April 2018 we broke ground with Greenfire Management Services as our building contractor. We reopened to the public on February 25, 2019, and celebrated a grand reopening in the summer of 2019.
