Library Services during Phase 1 Construction


Phase 1 is currently underway at the Lakeland Public Library

The Lakeland Public Library began a two-phase construction project on February 22, 2021.

Phase 1 of the project will renovate the adult services areas of the building, replacing lighting, ceiling fixtures, HVAC system, and ductwork. This phase will include the creation of the Lakeland History and Culture Center within the library. The second phase of the project, to begin after the completion of Phase 1, will renovate the youth services areas and meeting room space in the building.
