Construction project FAQ

What improvements will be made during the library renovation?

Our comprehensive renovation and expansion plan has created new spaces including a new dedicated program room for Youth, state of the art meeting rooms, additional study rooms, an expanded Teen Area, and an outside courtyard. We’re also making improvements throughout the building, including acoustics.

Where did the money for this project come from?

In 2016, the Westland Library embarked on a project to expand and update the library and we will be using money from that project as well as money we saved during the pandemic to fund this project.

Will the library close during renovation?

Yes, temporarily. The library relocated operations to Marshall School during construction to shorten the duration of the project. The library closed from late November 2022 to January 2023 and we are now closed until October 16, 2023.

Can I use other libraries during the temporary closure?

You may use your Westland library card to check out materials at any nearby library—bring your library card and ID to your first visit! For more information, see our guide to Finding Services at Neighboring Libraries.

How long will this project take?

This project began in October 2022 and will be completed in October 2023.

What companies will be handling the construction project?

Our construction manager is the Dailey Company. Architecture and design are provided by TMP Architecture and Library Design Associates. The project is managed by Plante Moran Cresa.
