Fond du Lac Public Library Renames East Branch To Honor Allen Buechel

The Fond du Lac Public Library has announced it’s renaming the east side branch of the library after former long time County Executive Allen Buechel.

The east side branch is on the east side of Fond du Lac in the Festival Foods shopping plaza. The public is invited to the renaming ceremony which will take place at the east branch location Friday at noon.

Buechel, who passed away in March of 2022 during his 29th year as County Executive, consistently supported libraries in the county with healthy annual budgets.

The community is encouraged to gather at the Buechel Branch to honor the late county executive on Friday as the library formally unveils the new name.

The event will include brief remarks and light refreshments, and guests can view the new, permanent display honoring Buechel inside the library.
