Wright Library is undergoing renovations in 2021. Needed repairs and replacements are being paired with 21st century updates to better meet the needs of today's library users. If you would like more information or have questions or comments, please contact Kristi Hale, Director, at


Park Level

The first phase of construction is underway in the lower level, which is temporarily closed to the public. Repairs will address the HVAC, elevator, lighting, and other infrastructure needs. When completed, the lower level will house the children and teens area, audiovisual materials, and an ADA and stroller friendly entrance.

Main Level

The second construction phase, expected to begin in the spring of 2021, will renovate portions of the main level, which will house the Community Room, a new conference room, ADA-compliant restroom, seating area, and adult computer area. The work on the main level will not involve the historic restorations completed in 2018.
