The Helen Plum Library has met with village staff several times over the past few weeks to discuss new building plans we outlined on our website in February.

We are currently working through these considerations as we prepare to submit designs for review by the Village Plan Commission.
Below are renditions of the current proposed plan, which could still be modified based on discussions with the Village, Park Board, and final cost estimates:
