The project begins May 1 and will go through the summer, all services will remain open

The Downtown Eugene Public Library is set to undergo a major renovation as it replaces its roof after 20 years. The project is slated to begin May 1 and will continue throughout the summer.

“At 20 years old, our roof has seen better days,” Library Director Will O’Hearn said. “We know this replacement will cause some detours and other distractions library goers aren’t used to, and you’ll still be able to access all the services and programs you know and love.”

Despite the construction, the library will remain open to the public with all services available during regular hours. Visitors can expect some level of inconvenience as the project is likely to cause noise, odors and parking limitations at various times. Occasional street closures will be announced through street signs.

Every effort will be made to minimize disruption, and the project will be completed as efficiently as possible. This renovation will ensure the Downtown Library remains a landmark in the community for years to come.

Eugene Public Library thanks the community for its patience and support during this renovation process.
