Library Renovation

On February 1, following the extreme Polar Vortex weather that hit the Chicagoland area, North Shore Country Day sustained substantial damage on campus when a pipe burst in the early hours, flooding our library. While the room itself took a real hit, it was the damage to our book collection and artwork that was so distressing for all of us on campus.

While this has been a devastating loss, we are excited by the opportunity to renovate and re-imagine our library space to reflect modern pedagogy and design. For the remaining school year, a modular unit will house our library program in the Middle School parking lot between Elder Lane and Forest Avenue. Between now and June 10, we will perform internal work that includes demolition and modernization of many of our School’s infrastructure systems that run through this building. On June 10, the first day of our summer break, we will expand the scope of work and size of crews to complete the library project by September 1.

  • Library Renovation Update – March 20, 2019

    I am writing with an update regarding our library. As you know, on February 1, we returned to school saddened to learn a water pipe had burst and flooded our Hall Library. The library is in the heart of our campus and serves all of our students in grades JK-12 on a daily basis. Since the discovery, we have been working on plans to 1) provide our students with modified library services for the rest of the school year and 2) restore the library space.
