On Sunday, Aug. 28, the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library System broke ground to signal the start of renovation of the University Heights Library.

Among the ceremony’s attendees were Heights Libraries board and staff members, University Heights Mayor Susan Infeld, and library customers.

Employees from the architecture firm CBLH Design and contractor Regency Construction were also on hand to celebrate the beginning of the construction phase of the project.

The renovated building will feature a full-functioning elevator (it currently has a lift), restrooms and meeting rooms on both floors, a door from the parking lot, and designated spaces for adults, teens and young children.

Construction is expected to take 12–14 months.

More information, and regular project updates, can be found at www.heightslibrary.org.
