Addison Public Library (IL) Children’s Library Tour*
The Addison Public Library opened its new building July 2008. This tour highlights the Children's Library. The dream about a new library became a reality on July 21, 2008, when the new building opened to the public for the first time. Thanks to the Village of Addison, which provide $13,000,000 in funding to build the 54,600 square foot building, the library has a magnificent new home. The money from the Village did not come from property taxes but from a .25% sales tax that has been in place for many years. The new building was designed by the architectural firm of Burnidge Cassell & Associates, Inc. The lead architect was Rick McCarthy. M. A. Mortenson oversaw the construction of the building. Neil Wisker was the project manager. The art work "Grand Openings" was created by Gregory Gove.
