INDIAN TRAILS LIBRARY RENOVATION

T

The Indian Trails Public Library is currently in the midst of a $14.4 million dollar renovation at its 355 Schoenbeck building in Wheeling and is operating out of temporary quarters at 70 W. Dundee Rd., Buffalo Grove, at the intersection of Buffalo Grove and Dundee Roads. The renovation is expected to be completed during the spring of 2017 when the library will reopen in Wheeling, said Susan Dennison, communications manager for the library. “We are doing a complete interior renovation of the existing library and constructing a 15,000-square-foot addition to the facility. We are also updating the building’s mechanicals and adding an energy-efficient geothermal heating and cooling system,” Dennison said. The current library was built in 1981. It was expanded and renovated

in two phases between 1995 and 1998. Now it is expanding again and getting a whole new look. “Everything we are adding are things our members have requested like eight private study rooms, a public-access conference room, a dedicated space for children’s programming, a larger space for adult programming, a training lab and a “makerspace” where do-it-yourselfers can sew, use 3D printers and laser cutters and so forth,” she said. An additional 46 more parking spaces and a drive-up window for the drop-off and pick-up of library materials will also be added. “This is going to be fantastic when it is done,” Dennison said. “We have been preparing for this renovation since 2010 and now that it is actually happening, the entire staff is beyond excited.”
