WE'RE BUILDING THE FUTURE. WITH YOU, WE WILL ALSO BUILD A LEGACY!

We've taken a big step forward to realizing the new Geneva Public Library! A new 57,000 square-foot building, located at 227 S. Seventh St., is currently under construction.  In addition to plenty of space for traditional library resources, the new facility will also have 76 on-site parking spaces, drive-up convenience, a variety of meeting areas, a community art gallery, and outdoor reading spaces. Stay up to date on building news by visiting the New Library website

To build a legacy for all generations, $1.5 million dollars from private donations is essential. Combined with public funding, we will provide services that you should expect from your library, including a DIY space, technology training, family learning and play areas, and more.  With your support,  we'll be able to offer higher quality programs and services, enhanced spaces, additional resources, and more technology for people at all ages and stages of life.  With your support, we'll help more children develop a love of reading, more teens foster their independence, more adults learn job skills, more seniors stay engaged learners, and more residents have a welcoming place to come together as a community. With you, we will build a legacy!
