Message from the Director

3/17/2021

We are so excited to welcome you to the new Belleville Public Library and Community Center. Stop by to take a look or check out the video and photos on our website.

We offer a huge thank you to everyone who gave their time, talents, and financial support to make this project happen for the Belleville community.

In 2015 area residents said they wanted services and spaces that would require a larger library. Community members confirmed this by supporting a successful $1 million capital campaign. Many attended design workshops offering their ideas as we worked with our architectural firm, FEH Design. The pandemic added extra challenges, but National Construction completed the job within a few weeks of their original schedule.

The new Library at 20 S. Park Street will begin a phased opening on Wednesday, March 17. Due to pandemic restrictions and a commitment to our community’s safety, initially a limit of ten people will be allowed in at a time to pick up library materials and request services like photocopying and printing. You will be able to see much of the library from the area in front of the circulation desk. As Covid case numbers continue to decline, expanded access and services will be phased in.

We look forward to seeing you at our new Library and Community Center.
