Helen Plum Library Announces Move to New Building

Helen Plum Library is announcing the closure of its current building at 110 W Maple Street in Lombard to relocate to a new facility at 411 S Main Street. The last day to visit the Library at 110 W Maple Street will be Wednesday, March 8. The Library and bookdrops will close to the public at 9pm that day.

During the closure, the Library encourages patrons to utilize its digital collections of downloadable eBooks and audiobooks, streaming video, and online learning resources. Helen Plum Library cardholders can also become reciprocal borrowers at neighboring libraries. More information about which services will be paused and which services will be available during the closure can be found at www.helenplum.org/big-move.

The disposition of the current building and its contents is still being determined. The Library Board of Trustees hopes to find a solution that is fiscally responsible, aligns with the Helen Plum Library Mission, and best serves the community.

Helen Plum Library will open the doors to its new 50,000-square-foot, two-story building with Grand Opening celebrations currently scheduled for April 22-23 (dates subject to change).

  • The new building features a cafĂ© vending area, 11 study rooms, public computers spread across the building, a large divisible meeting room, and a conference room.
  • Youth Services features two program areas, an early literacy area, and children's garden.
  • Teen Services will hold the Young Adult collection and a teen gaming area.
  • Adult Services features a quiet seating area with fireplace and a large computer lab for training along with Studio 411, our new makerspace.
