Renovations begin at Ewald
More updates from the Library Director
Phase 1 renovations of Reimagining Your Library are continuing.
Construction will begin at the Ewald Branch in August. To prepare for the renovations, this Saturday, August 1 is the last day we'll be offering curbside pick-up at Ewald. Curbside pick-up continues to be available at our Central and Woods branches Monday - Saturday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
If you received a notice that your hold items are available for pick-up at Ewald and you're unable to get them before this Saturday, they will be rerouted to Central or Woods. You will receive an email or phone call to let you know which branch has your items.
What changes are happening at Ewald?
A yearlong critical needs assessment with four community engagement sessions determined the building improvement priorities. The Ewald renovations include:
- An interior refresh of finishes and lighting.
- Improved site lines and safety at the main entrance and circulation and reference desks.
- Better acoustics throughout the building
May I still return my books and other library materials to Ewald after Aug 1?
Yes. The drive-up book drop in the GP Park municipal parking lot is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. The book drop in the Ewald building will NOT be available for use.
When will the construction be finished?
Once construction starts we anticipate approximately 12 weeks to complete all the renovations.
If you have additional questions please call our Reference Hotline Monday - Saturday from 10 am. - 6 p.m. 313-389-6212.
