Join the excitement as Muehl Public Library prepares to
“Celebrate Lifelong Learning…. The next Chapter begins in 2019”
Muehl Public Library is proud to announce that we will be expanding our facilities. Our current facility was built in 1994. The visionaries predicted that more space would be needed in the future. The library is intended to be a multigenerational community learning center and our new space will be able to meet the needs of all ages.
For example, the space will house study rooms for small meetings, sound recording or test taking space. There will be a very large multifunctional project area for things such as: crafting, robotics, legos, coding, coloring, knitting, building, or working on puzzles,. The list is endless. This area is called a Makerspace. The Makerspace area is a place for people to be creative problem solvers and inventors with many of their ideas having been inspired by literature they have read. The new addition will enhance our city by offering a common place for people to gather, create and of course, read!
