The Park Ridge Public Library has been serving the community since 1913. The current library was built in 1958 and an addition was added in 1977 that doubled the size of the building. After four decades, our much loved and used Library is showing signs of wear and tear; nor does it meet our patrons’ 21st century technology needs. Because the Library is a popular gathering place, we want it to be one of the most welcoming places in the community and are excited about starting a renovation that will create a vibrant, contemporary space. Throughout the years we have asked for your input on surveys, and this renovation reflects your ideas. More comfortable furniture. Quieter spaces. Larger teen space. Faster technology. Upgraded bathrooms. And much more! You asked. We listened.
Construction started on May 7 and will last six to eight months in three phases.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience during this project. But in the end, it will be well worth it.
