The new 96,000 sq ft Fountaindale Public Library is open! The Grand Opening event is Saturday. If you have a chance, head over for a look at this $39.5 million 21st century facility. With the failed $30 million referendum for expanding Plainfield's downtown site to 70,000 sq ft and adding a 30,000 sq ft branch, we can only admire their facility for now while we plan for the future. Fountaindale has given us an example of what IS possible in a modern public library. We can use this example to help our planning process to find what is right for our own community.
Congratulations to the residents, staff and Board of Trustees of the Fountaindale Public Library District.
