The Indian Prairie Public Library District is an innovative, community-centered library embarking on new adventures in 2021. We are excited to be undergoing a complete renovation of our building set to be completed mid-June. With the renovation we are adding a Marketplace of new and trending materials, a Maker Studio, expanding space for early literacy services, and providing more study and meeting spaces plus more space for programming. The building will be completely updated and provide more work and study space, enhancing the library’s role as the “third place” in the community. Find out more about our renovation.
In addition, we are implementing a new service model that features a Guest Services Department which serves all ages for general library services, including circulation, reader’s advisory, and basic reference assistance. The Resource Services Department combines on-call reference services and technical services to meet our community’s needs for materials, information, and research. The new Programming and Outreach Department serves all ages and will provide a greater library presence out in the community and a new Technology and Maker Services Department will be dedicated serving all ages in the Maker Studio. Read more about our new service model and how it will enhance our services.
