Highwood Public Library

YA Room Construction
Work has begun in the Young Adult Room of the library so this part of the library is currently not open to the public.  This does not mean that patrons cannot get materials from that area though.  If the items you are looking for are located in the YA Room please let the Circulation Desk staff know and they can either get the materials for you or bring you to the room so you can browse the stacks with the staff person present.  Either way we'll do our best to make sure you get the items you need.  Thanks for your patience during the construction.
East Building Renovation Update
Construction in the East Building of the library has switched into high gear during the past months.  We have corrected all the issues that have been hindering the project and things are really starting to shape up nicely.  The walls have been put up, patched and painted.  The ductwork for the HVAC system is installed and operational.  The electrical work is completed and the fire alarm equipment for the building should be installed before the end of this month.  The doorway for the main entrance has been installed.  Lastly, both bathrooms have been tiled and are ready for the plumbing fixtures to be connected.  The goal at this time is to have everything ready for use in early Fall.  Thanks for all your patience.
