Winnetka Library Adult Room, 2/28/2018
Thanks for your patience while we make improvements. We are sure you will love the finished product and look forward to celebrating with you at the Grand Re-Opening in summer 2018.
Stay informed on the renovation project
Construction is going to be happening in two phases with completion expected in June 2018.
Please note that Phase 2 of the renovation will then be in full swing and will be ongoing through June 2018. A few things to note as we return to services:
• The building will be pared down to the essential functions. We will have temporary lighting & furniture, new books will be easily accessible, and The Studio will be fully functional.
• Parking will be limited, due to construction vehicles and dumpsters. We would encourage patrons to allow extra time for parking.
