The Spring Lake District Library serves as a living room, an office, a school, and a playroom, all at the same time. We have more demand than ever for quiet meeting spaces, small group meeting rooms, and space to spread out, especially for kids.

We have three main goals for the Library Refresh.

  • Transform the children’s section into a flexible space to inspire imagination and creativity.
  • Create more quiet and private spaces for solo work, group work, and smaller meetings.
  • Reorient the front desk so staff can easily welcome patrons as they come in.

Transform the children’s section into a flexible space to inspire imagination and creativity.

  1. Create a new entrance to the children’s section.
  2. Create a larger play area in the children’s section to accommodate more families.
  3. Add a small stage in the children’s section for larger storytimes, children’s programs, and creative play.
  4. Transform the Storytime Room into a Makerspace/STEM room for messy crafts, projects, and experiments.
  5. Extend the existing patio to incorporate a children’s outdoor space.

Create more quiet and private spaces for solo work, group work, and smaller meetings.

6. Add a flex room next to the teen space, which can be used as a gaming or meeting room.
7. Add several small meeting rooms that fit1-4 people.
8. Rearrange the adult areas to accommodate more varied types of seating – desks, comfy couches, armchairs, café tables.

Reorient the front desk so staff can easily welcome patrons as they come in.

9. Move the front desk to face east.

Fundraising Goal – $675,000

The SLDL Board set aside some funds each year for future renovations. As a result, the Library Board has already saved about 65% of the amount needed. Your generous gift will allow us to update the library building to remain relevant to the patrons we serve.
