Marshall Public Library Renovations Coming Soon!

 

Marshall Public Library Board of Trustees is pleased to announce plans to renovate the library’s main level. For many years the library has been saving funds for a renovation project. In 2015, Edwin (Sonny) Daly former local resident, member of the Handy Writer’s Colony, and published author, donated $100,000 to the library upon his death. This money, combined with the library’s equivalent savings, made it possible to consider the idea of renovating the library’s main floor.

In January 2017, the Board of Trustees selected EWR Architects and Associates to begin a renovation plan. In April 2018 the library received word from Illinois State Library that the Live and Learn Construction Grant application for which they applied would be awarded to the library. With sufficient funds and renovation plans in place, the library will begin renovations later this summer. Renovations will include several updated features that will better assist library patrons with disabilities and overall library experience. The main features of the renovation include: a vestibule at the entrance of the library, a relocated circulation desk with added head librarian office, a new maker space/study room, a staff handicap accessible restroom, new flooring and paint, an enhanced genealogy area, increased seating and a new floor layout. Full size poster models of the renovations are now available for viewing at the library and at City Hall. The library will remain open during renovations.
