Construction crews are working on the interior of the new Geneva Public Library at 227 S. Seventh St. We hope to wrap up construction in the spring of 2020. Scroll down to enjoy interior photos of your new library!
What's next? Once construction is complete, there are several steps we must perform before we can move to the new library, including reviewing the punch list, undergoing inspections, installing furniture and shelving, setting up the network, tagging the collection, and packing at the current library to prepare for the move.
When is the moving date? The moving date will depend on the timeframe required for the punch lists, inspections, and installations.
Will you be closed during the move to the new library? We will close, but dates are not yet set for our move or opening day.
