Tippecanoe Renovation

Tippecanoe is undergoing a complete renovation of the interior of the building.  Architectural firm Engberg Anderson has been selected to design the renovated space. 

During renovation, a temporary site is located across the street from Tippecanoe Library at 3933 S. Howell Ave. The temporary site has a selection from the popular collection of materials and DVDs, holds pick-up, laptop computers, onsite parking, ADA accessibility, and a book drop. Hours of service are the same. 

Renovation is now well underway as seen in these photos taken April 29:

Library Director Paula Kiely, Mayor Tom Barrett, Alderman Terry Witkowski and members of the Board of Trustees held a community meeting on July 30. Read comments received at the meeting, follow the library’s blog, and stay up-to-date on developments by visiting this page often.

A second meeting was held Wednesday, Sept. 10 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Tippecanoe Library which included a presentation with a project update and images of what the newly renovated library will look like.
