While staff members get ready to move into a new structure, the Westfield Washington Public Library shutters



Westfield, Indiana – Monday is the closure day of the Westfield Washington Public Library while the staff gets ready to relocate to a new location.

Before moving the library’s collection, furnishings, and equipment to the new location at Park Street and Westfield Boulevard, staff members will be busy packing (17400 Westfield Blvd.).

“The closure is necessary to ensure a seamless and efficient transition to the new building,” said Sheryl Sollars, the library’s executive director. “Patrons are encouraged to keep any items they have checked out until the new building is open as nothing will be due during the closure.”

June 1 is set aside for the new building’s grand opening. The 43,000-square-foot building will have additional parking, an event area, a coffee shop, a maker space, and a digital media lab in addition to outdoor patio seating.

The library will not be responding to calls, emails, or requests via social media during the closure. Customers will still be able to use some services, such as the library’s sizable digital collection.

Hamilton County residents are urged to utilize the countywide borrowing arrangement, which permits cards to check out items from public libraries in Hamilton County that are not in Evergreen Indiana.

To borrow materials or seek assistance with their accounts, they can also go to or contact any other location within the Evergreen Indiana consortium of more than 130 libraries.

Visit the library’s website to find out more about the relocation and to receive updates on its status.
