Aspen Drive Library Expansion

Progress Report 8.14.19

Beginning Thursday, August 29, most library services will temporarily operate from Aspen’s newly-completed addition while we make exciting enhancements to the existing building. Please keep in mind during this phase that there will be reduced seating and a condensed selection of materials to check out. In addition, program offerings will be limited, taking place primarily at the Cook Park Library in Libertyville or other off-site locations.


Aspen will be closed Tuesday , August 27 and Wednesday, August 28 as we prepare for the final phase of the project. The Cook Park Library in downtown Libertyville will be open to serve you during this temporary closure.


Tentative completion of the project in late October / early November!
Our new addition will open with significantly expanded and dedicated space for children and families. The existing space will open with enhanced features such as additional study rooms, a makerspace, an enlarged digital studio and a spacious, beautiful quiet reading room.


In preparation for the Grand Re-opening, Aspen Drive will be closed for two days to accommodate furniture installation and reconfiguration of space. Watch this page for announcements on these closure dates and news about our Grand Re-opening!
