Construction Updates

Construction Overview

The library is preparing for the future by focusing on improving access and expanding possibilities in the use of indoor and outdoor spaces. When completed, Fishers and Noblesville residents will enjoy more pedestrian-friendly access and gathering spaces, additional parking, improved traffic flow, plus more experiential learning opportunities.

Planning a visit?

If you have visited or driven by our Fishers and Noblesville libraries lately, you have noticed the initial renovation work required to maintain our buildings into the future and improve access for all. Our libraries will remain open during regular hours throughout the construction unless posted differently on our web page here or our lobby doors.

The Noblesville library renovation will focus on improved traffic flow and expanded parking, increasing access to green spaces, creating outdoor amenities for all ages plus an updated front façade. We are expanding our Indiana Room with more experiential learning opportunities, exhibits, and improving second-floor access.

Currently, the North parking lot is under construction and no parking is allowed. Visitors should park in the South Parking lot.  It is anticipated that the paving of the reconfigured lot will begin in November, and the lot will reopen in mid-December 2021. At that time, the south parking lot will close for construction. A temporary main entrance to the library building will open in December 2021 for library visitors and staff.
