12/6/17 – Building Project Update please note:

The Youth Services Department and second floor of the library are currently closed. We have some youth materials and services available on the first floor. Midwest Environmental Consulting Services, Inc. (MEC) has provided the following information on this project:
All abatement operations are being carried out at night to minimize disruption to patrons.
The floor tile that is being abated from the library has remained in intact condition for a number of years and therefore has not been a hazard to anyone occupying the building. The asbestos content is only exposed when abatement or construction activities disturb the tile. While tile is intact and not disturbed, there is no exposure risk.
Midwest Environmental Consulting Services, Inc. (MEC) has been contracted by Villa Park Public Library to provide project management oversight and air monitoring to ensure compliance with all Local, State, and Federal asbestos regulations.
MEC will be performing daily air sampling for the duration of the abatement project to monitor potential airborne fiber concentrations inside and outside of the asbestos abatement work area, and clearance air sampling at the completion of the project, as required. 
All project management and air sampling will be performed by IDPH licensed personnel from MEC.  An Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) licensed asbestos abatement contractor will be performing all asbestos abatement activities and will also be utilizing IDPH licensed asbestos abatement workers.
