North branch library to close for renovations


The North Branch of the Evanston Public Library, 2026 Central St., will close from Aug. 3 through Aug. 24 for renovations to make the building's restrooms accessible in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Half of the funding for this project was acquired through a state matching grant. Both the library and its book drop will be unavailable for use during this time.

Library books can be returned at the main library, 1703 Orrington Ave. or the south branch at 900 Chicago Ave.

Holds not picked up before closing time on Aug. 2, will be sent to the main library and be available for pickup on Monday, Aug. 4.

If a hold becomes available while north branch is closed, the item will also be held at the main library. Books placed on reserve will also be held at the main library during the renovation work.
