Lisle Library District prepares for major renovation

The Lisle Library District will begin construction for its major renovation on Monday, March 21. The focus of the renovation is to increase efficiency, accessibility and functionality for all users.

The renovation is expected to last 10 to 12 months.

The first phase of the renovation will occur in the west end of the building, which will be closed to the public.

Shelving has been reoriented and rooms have been repurposed in the east end of the building to ensure patrons can access materials.

Once the first phase is complete, the east end will undergo renovation and be closed while the west end is open to the public. The district planned a two-phase project to ensure that patrons could access materials throughout the renovation project.

Project inclusions: drive-up service window, family restrooms, increased youth services department, more study rooms, centralized entrances, accessible staff, enhanced technology, outdoor reading space and more.

Videos and other posts about the renovation will be shared on the library's website,, Facebook and YouTube.
