Edina Library building project

Renovation

2017: Construction documents and bidding
Projected Completion: Summer 2017
The Edina Library renovation is scheduled to begin in March 2017, and the library will be closed for four months. 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.
