Your Refreshed Green Township Branch Library

The improvements at the Green Township Branch are based on feedback at community listening sessions we hosted in summer 2019. We're excited to incorporate much of your feedback, creating play and learn spaces for children and families, as well as a quiet study and work area for adults. Since some of our most popular programs are storytimes and family events, as well as genealogical and research clubs, we’re happy that our renovations will focus on making these experiences even better at the branch.

Here are just some of the improvements to the branch we’re excited for you to enjoy:

New Views

The old, expansive front desk has been replaced with a smaller service point installed along the wall near the entrance. This extra space will give you more space to browse and enjoy within the branch (and have better views of the beautiful skylight above the old desk area!).

Opening with Flying Colors

The old green carpet has been replaced with a brighter blue and the entire interior of the branch received new paint, which highlights the unique architecture of the building.

Accessibility Upgrades

The branch’s restrooms have been entirely renovated, complete with new floor and wall tiling, and are now fully accessible.

And that’s not all! There are plenty of new equipment, spaces, and experiences we’re excited for you to discover, including:

  • New, Comfortable Seating
  • Updated Meeting Room with Kitchenette
  • Expanded Creative Play Space
  • Cozy Teen Area
  • Dedicated Quiet Area and Study Space
  • Flexible Spaces to Meet Future Community Needs

Staying Connected Until the Opening
