Prospect Heights library ready for grand opening celebration on June 5
The Prospect Heights Public Library invites the public to its Grand-Opening Celebration/Summer Reading Kick-Off from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 5.
Activities include a ribbon-cutting ceremony, Summer Reading registration, supervised group tours, bagged giveaways, safely distanced live music, and a Kona Ice truck. Strict safety measures will be implemented and capacity limited per IDPH guidelines. Face masks are required indoors.
The library will be unveiling a new, spacious courtyard with ample outdoor seating, a water fountain, and an outdoor fireplace. During the tour, patrons can survey the library's new, modern interiors with expanded seating areas, larger program rooms and a new makerspace, housing the latest in STEM components and fabrication learning tools.
After a year of demolition and construction, complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Prospect Heights Public Library is proud of the efforts of staff who adapted their programs virtually and sustained borrowing services through curbside checkout and pickup.
Registration for the Grand-Opening Celebration/Summer Reading Kick-Off can be found on the library's new website, www.phpl.info.
