Changes in Store for 2024!

By: Dawn Bussey, Executive Director

The library’s mission to serve the community means that we are always changing and evolving to meet the community’s needs.

Inside the Library Building

In January, you may notice some shifting of the spaces on the 2nd floor of the library. The highly-anticipated makerspace will be created in the area that is currently the High School Room, and the Internet Lab will become the new High School Room.

The 2nd Floor Information Desk will also be reconfigured to better serve visitors using the library’s passport services. We hope that the disruption caused by the reconfiguration will be minimal, and that all of the areas will be ready for use in April 2024.

Later in 2024, we will add three additional 2nd floor study spaces and update some of the 2nd floor lighting and furniture.

Anywhere

Outside of the building, staff have been using the outreach van to take storytime to the parks, complete with music, scarves, and shakers! Some storytime sessions include up to 150 attendees—many more than would fit into the program rooms at the library!

Staff are also out in the van at Little Free Library locations and visiting schools and assisted living facilities. The Short Story Dispenser is currently “on tour,” and staff use the van to deliver the machine to schools where it dispenses curated stories and short-story contest-winning student writing!

Several times each week, staff deliver materials to the 65 S Park Lockers located at the Glen Ellyn Police Department for 24/7 pickup. You may also see the outreach van collecting and delivering items like welcome bags for the Festival of the Arts.

Inside the library building or out in Glen Ellyn, library staff are always looking for new ways to help meet the community’s needs.
