Project Progress

Construction has begun!

After years of planning, we are underway! It requires a little imagination to see our future home that will soon offer a sun- filled reading gallery, a toddler area, dedicated children’s program space, additional multi-purpose rooms, office suites, technology room, a makers space, a Teen Room, a cafe, and don’t forget the books! We hope these images help you ‘see’ what’s to come!

Recently, the pile driver installed the foundational pilons to support the addition, and interior demolition has opened up our space providing something of a blank slate. This month, the Building Committee has been working with the Library’s architect to specify furniture, such as the stacks for our excellent collection, flexible worktables, comfortable seating, stackable chairs for events, and so on. All selections are 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 move forward every day!
