East Lansing Public Library, or ELPL for short will be back open to the public this weekend after being closed for most of the summer due to renovations. ELPL’s grand re-opening will be at noon Saturday.

The renovations cost a total of $1.7 million, and the money was donated anonymously. Some of the renovations included structural and safety work as well as work done of the floor plan. Some more major projects in the renovations include a centralized service desk, larger teen and kids areas, a nursing room for mothers and a Maker Studio.

The Maker Studio will include 3-D printers and scanners, sewing machines, podcasting equipment, computers as well as soundproof music practice room. To hear more about the renovations check it out here.
