Expansion Almost Finished Mount Prospect Library Employees to Move in July 26

Seventeen years after first calling for expansion, leaders of the Mount Prospect Public Library expect to start moving into an enlarged library building on July 26.

Construction crews are putting the finishing touches on the building at 10 S. Emerson St., which is roughly twice as big as it was before voters approved a $20.5 million expansion project in 2002.

During the past 18 months of construction, the library has operated from a temporary site on Feehanville Drive. Executive Director Marilyn Genther said the library plans to close the site down the week before the moving date and reopen on Emerson Street in early September.

"Everything seems to be moving on schedule," Genther said. "I can't believe we're almost there."

The expansion has added a second floor to the building and completely renovated the first floor. The library will have twice as much space for books, computer stations, comfortable seating and meeting rooms. It will feature an expanded area for children and a separate area for teens, something the building was too small to offer before.

The expanded building also will be brighter and easier to get around, library officials say.
