Making Main Better for You!

Administrator : January 8, 2016 9:13 am : Elkhart Public Library, Home Feature

SL-Pardon our Dust
2015-12-18-006-EDIf you have recently visited our Main Library, you have seen the temporary wall in the middle of the first floor. Construction has begun on the new Circulation Desk and staff work space, which will be relocated to the east wall. The restrooms are also being renovated to meet ADA standards. Circulation is being moved to make room for a larger, ADA compliant elevator, as well as to create a more open, welcoming entrance area. The Information Desk will also be moved to a more convenient location. Barring unforeseen circumstances, we plan to remain open during construction.

In addition to the new elevator and first-floor improvements, updates will be made to other areas of the building.

Basement

  • Redesign entrances and widen passageways to meet building code for all public spaces
  • Add two smaller meeting rooms that can be joined or used separately
  • Strengthen sound barriers between all meeting rooms
  • Replace aging light fixtures and worn carpet in existing meeting rooms
  • Add a small kitchenette for groups using the meeting rooms
  • Replace original 1963 basement HVAC system
  • Designate an enclosed space for Friends of the Library and book sale activities, which are important to financial support of Library programming not available through the tax-supported budget

Second Floor

  • Add a second restroom
  • Add two small conference/study rooms

Benefits to the Community

  • Access to all Library spaces and collections for individuals of all ages and abilities, including those with physical handicaps
  • Active Library participation in the civic, educational, and social life of Downtown Elkhart (e.g. location for polling and absentee voting during elections, venue for special events during Jazz Festival, etc.)
  • More options for innovative community and Library programming
  • Flexible-use spaces for large or small groups, one-on-one consultations, and individual study areas

As the renovation progresses, we will post updates here and on our Facebook page. We will continue to post construction photos in Facebook album Main Library Renovations: Relocating Circulation, and create new albums as we move on to the other projects.

Book Lover’s Calendar

Administrator : December 16, 2015 9:21 am : Elkhart Public Library

Friends-medThe Friends of the Elkhart Public Library invite you to stop by any EPL location and purchase a 2016 Book Lover’s Page-a-Day Calendar.

With daily recommendations for read-alikes based on the works of familiar authors, famous last lines, literary quizzes, and some surprises, the Book Lover’s Calendar is an ideal gift for the bibliophiles on your list. Treat yourself to one, too!

The calendars cost $7.00 each, with proceeds going to the Friends of the Elkhart Public Library, a nonprofit group of generous volunteers who provide funding for special programs and “extras” that would not be possible on the Library’s limited budget.

Supplies are limited, so get yours soon!
