It covers a 72-square-mile area, making it the largest library district in Illinois, geographically speaking. In 2013-2014, the library underwent a complete redesign and renovation. The building was not expanded, but redesigned to make the most efficient use of the space for the public. Improvements and additions

include a completely redesigned Youth Services department with a focus on active play and learning; a Business and Technology Center, featuring a MakerLab, digital creation studio, computer lab, study rooms, media:scape technology collaboration spaces, 10-person conference room and business cubicles; improved and refurnished meeting rooms, and the Zimmerman “Smart� Room. In 2015, the library was recognized by the Illinois Library Association for these renovations. For information, visit
