GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A task force is being assembled to look into the possibility of combining the Brown County Central Library with the Neville Public Museum.
County Executive Troy Streckenbach says the “cultural campus” idea came from Supervisor Thomas Lund and has interest among county supervisors and city leaders.
The idea was tossed around at a time when the library needs tens of million of dollars in repairs, maintenance and upgrades and visitors to the Neville are declining.
Streckenbach says the combination could represent a “rebranding of both the library and museum for future generations.”
Streckenbach says the task force will look at required programming and space needs for the library and how it could fit in the museum’s existing foot print, an expanded museum or an entirely new facility.
“All options are on the table” Steckenbach said.
The task force will be announced later this week.
