Library Building Program Update – September 2019

If you’ve been to the library lately, you have probably noticed that changes are taking place. It could be shelving moving locations, collections being moved, tables and seating areas being reconfigured.

The first stage of change has begun on the road to a bigger and better Huntley Area Public Library. As we renovate, we are going to have to close for a few days to continue our progress.

The first closing will occur October 16th through the 22nd, and the second closing will be from December 9th through the 15th.

No fines will accumulate and no materials will be due during the library closures. Items on the hold shelf will be given extended pickup dates.

During our October closure another library will be joining the library consortium affecting what is accessible in the online catalog. From Saturday, October 19 – October 21, features of “My Account” online and in the library app will be unavailable. You will be unable to pay fines, place holds or renew items. Search results in the online catalog will not be up-to-date.

Most online resources will be accessible except the library app, Novelist and Creativebug. Online catalog services and resources are expected to be fully functional on October 22.

We encourage you to check out additional items before the closings so you will not run out of materials to listen to, watch, or read.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate your continued patience while we work to make the library better for the entire community.

We will continue to keep you updated on the renovation process in the pages of the Whole Story and online at

In the meantime, have a look at some very early renderings of the exterior and interior of the existing and new library. These are by no means final, but it will provide you some insight on where we are headed.
