A planned $5.3 million renovation and expansion of the William P. Faust Westland Public Library is now under way and will include the addition of 7,000 square feet to the building. The current location will close to the public until a potential reopening of the remodeled facility next fall. Services will be available beginning in late January at the Marshall Upper Elementary School building on Bayview Street, officials said.
While online services will continue without interruption, other services including loaning of books and materials will be available at nearby libraries include Canton Township, Garden City and Wayne. Officials said those facilities will honor a Westland library card during the project.
Among the planned improvements at the Westland library are an additional nine meeting rooms. A new open layout, a programming room, new carpet and paint are all planned for the building.
