Peoria Public Library – Main Branch

The Peoria Public Main Library has undergone extensive renovations and remodeling of its existing facility. The new design significantly opens every floor to allow more patron use in lieu of closed book stack areas. Project included opening the building to allow more natural light penetration, relocating the main entrance to a new stair tower addition, and updating the facility to a more modern library system to carry them into the future. Design features include a new skylight and light well that extends between all four floors allowing light to reach the two basement levels. River City Construction worked in conjunction with the Owner and the Design Team to facilitate a project that met the budget, schedule, and goals of all parties involved.

  • Owner: Peoria Public Libray
  • Architect: Farnsworth Group
  • Status: Completed April 2011

“We had very difficult budget constraints during these projects.  River City Construction provided excellent value engineering advice which enabled construction to be of the highest quality, but not over-priced.  These decisions were a complete team effort with RCC and the Board of Trustees Building Committee striving to reach the same goals.”

“In conclusion, I believe the Main Library, new North Branch, Carnegie Lincoln Branch addition and renovation, the renovated McClure Branch and the refurbished Lakeview Branch speak for themselves.  These were five different and distinct projects with each having unique challenges River City Construction guided the Peoria Public Library Board to an exceptionally successful result.

I recommend River City Construction to any organization contemplating a building project without hesitation and am available to elaborate on any additional questions.”

Linda E. Daley, Chairman
Peoria Public Library Building Committee
