Project Progress

Construction has begun!

You can see the building taking shape now! It still takes a bit of imagination to see the Library's future home with its sun-filled reading gallery, toddler area, dedicated children’s program space, additional multi-purpose rooms, office suites, technology room, makers space, Teen Room, cafe, and don’t forget the books! We hope these photos help you envision what’s to come!

Recently, the concrete was poured, and you can see the framing for the new space in front has gone up. The Building Committee has been working with the Library’s architect to finalize the furniture choices, including stacks for our excellent collection, flexible worktables, comfortable seating, stackable chairs for events, and so on. All selections are being made with a careful eye to utility, variety, value, comfort and durability.

The Building Committee offers an extra layer of detailed oversight, working closely with the exceptional professional team and reporting to the Library Board and Village Board--and also to you, the community. Please check out the Project Binder, available on our website, with updated documents about the project. Meanwhile, the Library Loft at Supply Field offers a comfortable temporary home during construction. Thank you for your patience, support and trust as we continue to move forward every day!
