Cyber Cafe, Reading Room Planned For Lincoln Library Main Branch


Lincoln Library’s main branch downtown is getting a renovation that will bring a section of the library out of the 1970s and into the 21st Century. 

 

The makeover of the second floor will include the construction of a “cyber café” and reading room.  The $500,000 project is being paid for by a donation from the Joe DeFraties Foundation… named for the founder of Chilli Man Chilli in Springfield. 

 

Mayor Mike Houston and library officials say the project will be the first update of the second floor since the main branch was built in 1977.  They hope the new features will bring more people into downtown and into the library.
