Sylvan Grove Public Library’s Downtown Design Assistance project underway

Library patrons and Sylvan Grove residents are getting excited about the changes happening at the Sylvan Grove Public Library.

Last summer the library participated in the Downtown Design Assistance program, and Lincoln County Economic Development Foundation director Kelly Larson, with summer interns Miki Blair and Bethany Pingel, drafted interior and exterior plans, with cost estimates.

The library shares a building with the Sylvan Grove City Hall. Plans for the library improvements included converting the center garage bay area of the City Hall building, 122 S Main St., into additional space for the library, which will nearly triple the square footage for the library side of the building. Also in the plans were a new ADA accessible entrance where the garage door had been, and updating the interior space with ADA accessible bathrooms and a craft sink and cabinets for improved storage, among other updates.
