Library Building Options Being Explored
As part of the library’s strategic plan, the Library Board contracted with the architectural firm of Nagle Hartray & Associates to complete a thorough facility analysis of the library building. Their report pointed out many major system repairs to the library building that should be completed over the next five years. The report can be found here: VPPL_ FACILITY ANALYSIS REPORT_with appendices.
In order to address the major system needs of the facility as well as the need for additional library space, the Library Board contracted with Williams Architects of Itasca, Illinois, to evaluate options for improving or replacing library building systems, improving library space, and enhancing services to patrons. Location, site development, service space, and estimated project costs will be factors to be considered.
The current facility was built in 1969. Nearly 20 years ago, limited interior remodeling was done to accommodate technology and make more efficient use of existing space. No additional space was added at that time. No major system components were updated. Additional information about the building project can be found here.
Feedback is Needed from the Community
The Library Board is looking for public input and feedback on various building option considerations. The Board will host an Open House on February 15 at 1:00–3:00 p.m. and at 7:00–9:00 p.m. At the Open House, the Board, staff, and architects will share information about facility, space, and service needs at the library, and will seek feedback on potential building improvement options. A referendum will be required to fund the project.
Another Open House will be held on April 18 at 1:00–3:00 p.m. and at 7:00–9:00 p.m
The Library Board is also conducting a community survey, please follow the link below to submit your feedback:
