A vibrant city that values a strong sense of community knows all the positive things an independent bookstore can do for the local area.
Becky Glewen, the mayor of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, has been in touch with us to help us locate a entrepreneur interested in opening a bookstore in her town. Please circulate this post far and wide and do what we can to support this wonderful initiative.

From Beaver Dam Mayor Becky Glewen:
This is your opportunity to open a bookstore.
Why Beaver Dam, Wisconsin?
We are a thriving community of 16,000+ residents, near three major metropolitan areas. Our downtown is being developed as a theater-arts district. By the end of 2018, the Beaver Dam Area Community Theater will complete its $2.4M theater building project downtown. In addition to the theater, the local Arts Association, in partnership with community donors, businesses, and the city, funded a Wall Dog Mural Festival which placed fourteen murals throughout the City with a concentration on the downtown area. Beaver Dam is focused on creating downtown space for the community to gather. A book store would be a positive addition to our city and county, acting as a cultural hub and literary anchor for the downtown.
Why right now?
The opportunity is available to work with a building investor that is interested in renovating the space for the right new business start-up. Future grant funds are available for new business start-ups, facade, and awning improvements.
