Question of the Day: Will the north side branch be in or near Bolingbrook?

The Library is still in negotiations for property and has not announced an exact location. In general, the target area was east of Normantown Road, north of 135th, west of Essington Road, and south of 111th, with the main focus on the grid along and between 248th Street, 119th Street, Plainfield-Naperville Road, and 127th Street.

The longest drive-times to the downtown Plainfield location are from the far north areas of the District, including the Bolingbrook portion of the district, prompting the focus for property acquisition to be in that area.

The Library District serves the Village of Plainfield, the part of the Village of Bolingbrook that is in Wheatland Township, the part of the Village of Romeoville that is in Plainfield Township, unincorporated Wheatland Township, and unincorporated Plainfield Township. District boundaries stretch from north of Boughton Road on the far east side of the district to just west of Arbeiter Road in Kendall County between Route 126 and Caton Farm Road.
