Edina Library building project


2017: Construction documents and bidding
Projected completion: Late summer 2017

About the project

The Edina Library renovation is scheduled to begin in April 2017. The library will be closed for approximately four months, starting April 10.

Improvements will include a larger children’s area with interactive learning elements, additional quiet study rooms and an enclosed reading room. Acoustical treatments will be added to contain the sound from interactive collaborative spaces. An assortment of seating styles will provide comfortable seating and power plug-ins for patrons. The new design will take advantage of natural lighting opportunities and all light fixtures will be upgraded to LED. New automated materials handling equipment and a work room reconfiguration will improve behind-the-scenes efficiencies.
