Transforming Main Library

We’re renovating Main Library to bring you updated technology, a larger children’s area, an outdoor reading area and so much more. We’re staying open during construction, but a lot is changing. Beginning Feb. 1, most library services will move into the historic Carnegie portion of the library and space will be tight.


Download our Guide to Main Library During Renovation for more information.


We’ll continue to offer:

  • Storytime, Reading Buddies and other children’s programming
  • Homework Help
  • YouMedia and teen space
  • Public computers
  • Quick Pick and high interest books
  • Library catalogs to browse the collection
  • Pickup for reserves


Full services at Main Library will be back and better than ever once the transformation is complete in August 2016.


Check back to watch our progress. In the meantime, we hope you’ll stop in!



An enhanced front plaza will greet customers along Grant Ave.
