Harold Washington Library to be renovated

The Harold Washington library is getting a makeover thanks to tax increment financing. The $6 million dollar rehab will include a new roof, generators, heating, and AC systems.

The “TIF” fund will also pay for Tuckpointing and facade work to the exterior. Prior upgrades to the 26-year-old building focused on public service areas.  Work is expected to be completed next year.
