MOSINEE (WAOW) -

Mosinee Middle School leaders are making plans for an upgrade of the library. The school recently took part in a the Great American Classroom Makeover contest. The final vote tally showed Mosinee placed second.  550 schools  originally submitted applications for the contest.

As a result of the second place finish, Librarian Sandra Wurdeman says they will  move forward with library upgrades. The school's library was built in the 1930's.

Plans call for painting the walls, buying new furniture and shelves and installing new carpet. Wurdeman says they will also make the space accessible for those who have disabilities. New lap tops and wiring to support technology upgrades are also on the agenda.

"We need to make the library handicapped accessible and to provide a space that works for all of our students. In addition we want to have the technologies available that students need in the 21st century," said Wurdeman.
