At the end of November, the Naperville Public Library Board of Trustees approved just over 1.1 million dollars to put toward updates at the Naper Boulevard and Nichols locations.
“What we really want to do is help our community have the best use of our facility and the resources we have and we think that is going to be a big step towards that. Hopefully people will come in and be very excited,” said Julie Rothenfluh, Naperville Public Library Executive Director.
Renovations at Naper Boulevard will include new carpeting, better lighting, the relocation and enhancement of the computer lab and teen area, as well as more power outlets for those looking to plug-in while at the library.
The funds will also help create a space dedicated to NaperLaunch, a new program at Nichols library, which strives to serve the needs of local entrepreneurs and small business owners by providing them with workshops, networking opportunities, and resources to help develop a successful business.
The changes are expected to be completed by April.
The projects are being funded by bonds from the city as well as the library’s own capital reserve.
