Library Building Project

Caseyville Library is getting a new facility right next door to our current library building. This process has been over a year in the making and involved an intergovernmental agreement between Caseyville Library and Collinsville Unit School District 10 (CUSD10). The new library will continue to be an autonomous organization in a separate building from the Caseyville Elementary School. The library traded its expansive allotment of land for CUSD10 to build a new library building complete with much needed facility updates, ADA accessibility, more space, a meeting room for library events, a study room, and more work space for library operations. Read the updates and news articles below to learn more about this process.

Construction Progress Late March 2024

3-19-24 the old Caseyville Library was demolished. Library Director, Jackie made the first strike to take down the building. Library staff, board members, and previous Library Director, Ashley attended the demo as well. This building served Caseyville Library members well from 1998-2024, but Caseyville has grown and so have its residents' needs. We are so excited to share this new library building and all it has to offer!
