Ida Rupp Interior Renovation

The Board of Trustees of the Ida Rupp Public Library has awarded a construction project to Telamon Construction, Inc. for an interior renovation of our main library. 

The project designed by HBM Architects, LLC will rework the interior of the library to better utilize our space. The library is looking forward to an updated interior that will include a larger children's programming space, dedicated local history room, an inclusive restroom designed to accommodate families with children and those with accessibility or assistance needs, new furniture, new lower shelving and more. 

The project will be completed in three phases beginning in late April 2024. A temporary wall will be build down the center of the library to cordon off certain spaces as the project progresses. 

Due to floor plan that will be available during our phased construction, a large number of library materials will be packed and moved to storage for the duration of the renovation. A browsing collection that represents most collection areas will be available during the renovation. Our Local History, Bataan and Ohioana collections will be moved to storage in their entirety during the renovation. 

Many library programs will take place at off site locations throughout the community. We will also have some take home activities available during the renovation.

Watch our website for information about library closures due to renovation and updates on our progress.
