The renovated Hyde Park Branch Library is now open! The branch, located in the heart of Hyde Park, underwent a floor-to-ceiling renovation, which included extensive interior upgrades and expanded meeting space while prioritizing accessibility improvements to the entrances, parking, restrooms, and throughout the building. The project, part of the Facility Master Plan South East planning zone, started in August 2022 and was completed in April 13, 2024.

Phase I

The first phase of the project began in August 2022. Crews improved the branch's sewage and drainage system under the existing parking lot.
