Grandview Branch Closes July 3 for Renovations

Grandview Branch Closes July 3 for Renovations

June 17, 2020

At 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 3, Mid-Continent Public Library’s Grandview Branch (12930 Booth Lane, Grandview, MO) will close for several months as the facility undergoes a major renovation. Construction at the Grandview Branch, which is estimated to be complete by late spring 2021, will include an expansion of nearly 4,400 square feet as well as a variety of other improvements, including:

  • New community programming room
  • Three meeting/collaboration rooms
  • New dedicated children’s area
  • Parking lot repairs
  • Enhanced entry and native landscaping
  • New paint, carpet, and ceilings
  • New signage and display cases

While the Grandview Branch is closed, the Library will direct customers to the Red Bridge Branch (unless customers request a different branch) to pick up materials they have put on hold. Grandview Branch customers are welcome and encouraged to use the services of any other MCPL branch.

This renovation is part of MCPL’s ongoing Capital Improvement Plan, which it launched following the passage of Proposition L in 2016. As part of the Capital Plan, all MCPL branches will be improved in some way, and two new branches will be built by the end of 2022. One of the two, the new East Lee’s Summit Branch, opened earlier this month.

While the upgrades at each branch have varied based on individual community needs and the building’s current condition, the Library’s goal is to create more intentional spaces and upgrade essential technology. The Library is working with Sapp Design Architects, Helix Architecture + Design, and JE Dunn to complete all of the work in the Capital Plan. In addition to all the physical upgrades, the increased funding approved by voters in 2016 has allowed MCPL to expand branch hours, enhance special services, augment early literacy efforts, and buy more materials.
