Eden Prairie Library reopens Tuesday, February 25

The Eden Prairie Library reopens on Tuesday, February 25 at 9 a.m. following a 14-month renovation.

The first thing visitors will notice is the opened up main area in the center of the library. Instead of housing the information desk, the space has been redesigned for patron use with height-adjustable computer stations and flexible furniture that can be moved around to accommodate a variety of programs and displays.

The library also includes new meeting rooms, an outdoor lounge space, comfortable seating around the refaced fireplace, and a new play and learn area with a magnetic wall, lounge furniture, tables for games and puzzles, imagination station, and a reading nook.

Other improvements focus on sustainability with electric vehicle charging stations, LED fixtures, use of natural daylight, and improved entry points to reduce air infiltration.

Celebrate the reopening

In recognition of the reopening, all are welcome to join county officials, library staff and neighbors for remarks and a ceremonial ribbon-cutting at 5 p.m.

“There has been a library in Eden Prairie since 1924, and the renovation ensures we can continue to provide services for residents at this dynamic community hub,” said Hennepin County Commissioner Debbie Goettel. “I look forward to celebrating the reopening together with all of the community members and staff who made this renovation possible.”

The library will remain open until 9 p.m. on the 25th.
