Watch the new Geneva library take shape


We've come a long way from April 2017's referendum to library construction at 227 S. Seventh St.!

What will the new library feature?

The 57,000-square-foot building will have 76 off-street parking spaces, drive-up convenience, a variety of meeting areas, a community art gallery, and outdoor reading spaces.

* The Library will feature an enhanced children’s area with developmentally appropriate collections, play areas, and learning opportunities for children from birth through eighth grade.

* Teens and adults will have access to a variety of library materials and enjoy spending time in the quiet reading and study spaces.

* Additionally, Library service will be expanded to include new opportunities for collaborating, using technology, and experimenting in lab spaces.

The goal is a prospective opening date in the fall of 2019.
