The expansion will add about 6,000 square feet to the existing building and will include a larger Discovery Zone for children including sensory-friendly and bigger play areas, a new Teen center with gaming and lounge space, a quieter public use computer area, a new service desk, additional restrooms and many additional upgrades.

The Carnegie section will remain untouched other than some internal rearranging to add a lovely sitting and quiet study area for all to enjoy and the Fiction section will be relocated downstairs for easier access.

The Library appreciates the patience of the community during construction of this wonderful Expansion Project which will allow the Library to better accommodate its patrons for the foreseeable future.

Stay tuned to the Library’s Facebook page (@jvillelibrary) and its website for information on parking lot closures, altered entrances, book drop relocation and any other construction related accommodations. As always, curbside pickup service is available. # # # Contact: Beth Smilack Jerseyville Public Library 105 N. Liberty Jerseyville, IL 62052 (618) 498-9514;
