Homer Township Library will close Sept. 30 for three weeks to complete the final phase of its expansion project.
After the library moved into its new addition, the existing building was renovated to be the new children’s department. The building will be closed while crews complete the move.
The library will re-open Oct. 21 with a grand opening celebration to be held in November, director Sheree Kozel-La Ha said.
“Everyone will be excited when they see all the new space,” she said.
Patrons who are placing holds on books during this closure can pick them up in Mokena or New Lenox libraries. Late fees will be waived from Sept. 30 through Nov. 9. The bookmobile will continue to be available.
The newly remodeled space will have rooms for story time/family activity, teens and the community
The 11,640 square foot addition on the south end of the building includes the adult collection, with six study rooms and a quiet reading room.
