Building Program

The Urbana Free Library is creating a Building Program to assess its current and future space needs. The plan will set direction for the Library when it is ready to renovate or expand the building at a future date. This activity falls under the Strategic Plan Pillar Enhance, Goal 1: We steward our physical and financial resources to allow for growth and sustainability.

Below is an outline of our process and ways for the community to provide input.  Please check back often as we’ll add updates and adjust our process as it unfolds.
