St. Joseph Public Library reopens

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- After two years of renovations, the St. Joseph Public Library finally reopened their doors to the public on Sunday.

In addition to welcoming back community members, the library is eager to share its brand-new resources and spaces that former visitors have never seen before.

Outside of every genre of book, movie, and magazine you can imagine, the improved library has a long list of new areas for patrons to enjoy.

These include a new children’s area, teen space, fiction section, gallery, common area, reading room, study rooms, a community learning center with a ballroom, an auditorium, and several meeting spaces.

There is also an expanded STUDIO 304 that features tools and technology to create and produce print, video, and audio projects.

Every floor is filled with a new experience, history, computers, and of course staff members to help you navigate the renovations.

It even has a new courtyard to hang out once the weather gets nicer.

Supply chain issues caused some setbacks in the construction process but that didn’t stop the library from opening up to be a modern staple in South Bend.

Along with the library re-opening comes new times to come a visit as well.

The library is open from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

On Friday and Saturday, they’re open from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Sundays you can visit from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

For all the information you need to know about what the library has to offer, you can visit their website at St. Joe County Public Library (
