Due to continued delays with the building envelope project, public access to our building will continue to be temporarily rerouted to an entrance off of 147th Street for one more week, with a new estimated main entrance opening date of Saturday, October 30. We regret the continued inconvenience this poses to our patrons and request your patience with us, as we have been impacted by events outside our control.

Please remember that while our parking lot is available, some may find it more convenient to park on Kenton Avenue, as space permits. In addition, curbside pickup of library materials is available for anyone for whom the walk to the temporary entrance presents a barrier or inconvenience.

On a brighter note, mark your calendar for our Grand Reopening and 90th Anniversary Celebration, Saturday, November 20 at 10:00 AM. Held indoors with masks and social distancing, the celebration will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony, light refreshments "to go," and library tours. Please bring an item to help restock our Micro Pantry!

We appreciate your continued patience and flexibility with our ongoing construction and look forward sharing our newly refurbished building with you!

When we announced that starting September 15, public access to our building would be temporarily rerouted to an entrance off of 147th Street, our general contractor estimated that the main entrance would reopen on October 12 or shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen delays, the new estimated date to reopen the main entrance is Friday, October 22. We regret the continued inconvenience this poses to our patrons.

Please note that while our parking lot is available, some may find it more convenient to park on Kenton Avenue, as space permits. In addition, curbside pickup of library materials is available for anyone for whom the walk to the temporary entrance presents a barrier or inconvenience.

We appreciate your continued patience and flexibility with our ongoing construction and look forward to later this fall when we can share our newly refurbished building with you!

In follow-up to our message a couple weeks ago, all public access to the building is currently being routed through a temporary entrance off of 147th Street while workers renovate our main entrance.

During the use of the temporary entrance, the parking lot will be available; however, some may find it more convenient to park on Kenton Avenue, as space permits. Curbside pickup of library materials is available for anyone for whom the walk to the temporary entrance presents a barrier or inconvenience.

We anticipate that our main entrance will reopen--complete with new sliding doors--October 12 or shortly thereafter. Please call us for updates on exact details as time goes along.

Dear Library Patrons,

The library is ready to move into the final stages of its building envelope renovation project! While our space has been disrupted for some time, we are pleased that we have not had to close the library for a single day of normal service due to the construction.

Nevertheless, starting early next week, all public access to the building will be routed through a temporary entrance off of 147th Street while workers renovate our main entrance. We expect this to begin the morning of Tuesday, August 31, but please feel free to call us at (708) 535-2027 to check for updates on the exact date and time.

During the use of the temporary entrance, limited street parking will be available on Kenton Avenue, and our parking lot will be open as usual. Curbside pickup of library materials is available for anyone for whom the walk to the temporary entrance presents a barrier or inconvenience.

We anticipate that our main entrance will reopen--complete with new sliding doors--the week of September 27. Again, please call us for updates on exact details as time goes along.

We appreciate your continued patience and flexibility with our ongoing construction and look forward to later this fall when we can share our newly refurbished building with you!

Wishing you safety and wellness,

Jennifer Cottrill, Library Director
