Throughout the design process of the Library’s renovation and expansion, a lot of attention has been paid to the interior spaces. Over the past year, the Village of Antioch has previewed some beautification projects planned for the downtown area. In the original plans for the Library remodel there were only small landscaping modifications made for the stretch of the Library building facing Main Street. The monies for completing a grassy lawn, a small path and the insertion of electric is secure. However, the Library Board and Renovation & Expansion Committee saw an opportunity to expand on this area with a little help from the community. A new plan was drafted to create a brick pathway and add lighting, benches and a host of vibrant new plantings. This will provide an additional place for people to sit and gather or for the Library to host programs. Best of all, it will blend with the Main Street beautification project and expand the green spaces in our community.

Help secure a kinetic wind mill for the Library Garden Walk. Starting September 1 and running through winter, children can take part in their own fundraising project by collecting pennies toward this children’s inspired item.

Collect your pennies, then visit Antioch’s State Bank of the Lakes to deposit your donations. They will provide each child with a receipt to bring back to the Library. Bring in your slip to add your amount to the tally, vote on one of these three that you wish to be purchased and placed in the Garden Walk next spring and get a small prize for participating.

All Children can cast a vote at the Library each day that they visit. Ask for a voting form from the Children’s Desk staff.
