NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Learn about plans to renovate Roosevelt Library June 14


Now that the Nokomis Library renovation is complete and that library has reopened, the Hennepin County Library system is discussing renovating the Roosevelt Library. 

The first community meeting to discuss plans to renovate Roosevelt Library will be Tuesday, June 14, 7 p.m. at the Sibley Recreation Center, 1900 E. 40th Street, Minneapolis. County and Library staff and the architects will speak and answer questions.

A feasibility study was conducted this winter by Hagen, Christensen & McIlwain Architects.

The overarching goals are to have a library that is accessible, in good physical condition and is inviting to families, children, teens and adults.

Proposed Features and Services:

• More public computers and wireless access

• Flexible appealing spaces with comfortable seating

• Increased operational efficiencies with one customer service point

• Refreshed collection of books, DVDs and CDs with world language resources 

The library opened in 1927 and has been designated an historic site by the Minneapolis Historical Preservation Commission.

Roosevelt Library is located at 4026 28th Ave. S. Hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-8 and Saturdays from 10-6.
