New Library Project

Plans to build a new library are moving forward! In August, the plans for the new library (PDF) were approved by both the Village Board and Library Board at a Joint meeting. The project is currently out to bid.

The new library will include great spaces for all ages to enjoy! It will feature a storytime room, a community meeting room, study rooms, a quiet reading room, and more seating for all ages. A geothermal system and solar panels are also included in the project.

Interior design is still in progress, but you can take a peek at preliminary interior images (PDF). Furniture and shelving will be selected later, but is shown as a placeholder to show how spaces will be used.
