The DeKalb Public Library will be closing its doors from August 20th through September 9th; remodeling of the old Haish Memorial Library will be finished by then, and staff will be joined by volunteers in moving materials from the new wing of the library, back into the old one.
Once this second move is complete, the $25.3 million construction project, with restoration of the former library building will more than triple the DeKalb Public Library’s size from 19,500 square feet to 65,000 square feet.
The library will then hold what it’s calling a ‘Grander Opening’ on Saturday, September 10th. Ceremonies will include a ribbon-cutting, and the dedication of a time capsule. The restored Haish wing will include a new Teen Room, a computer lab and a collaboration studio. The library is located at 309 Oak Street in DeKalb.
