We've heard from several people that they are confused about the architectural renderings of the proposed downtown library. They are all different views of the same building.
This is the site plan, showing how the parking will be expanded and the footprint of the new building. Look for the dotted line that shows the outline of the existing building:
This is the new "main" entrance, facing Route 59. It is the right side of the building when you are viewing the site plan.
This view is the north side, facing the Illinois Street parking lot. It is the top side of the building when you are viewing the site plan.
This is the southwest corner of the building, showing the original 1941 library. It is the lower left corner of the building when viewing the site plan.
This is the proposed Illinois Street entrance on the west side of the building. On the site plan, it is the recessed opening on the upper left corner of the building.
If you are still thoroughly confused, stop by the Library during one of our information table times! We'd be happy to "walk" you around the proposed downtown library.
