Tiskilwa Library construction

Donny Paul of Hein Construction Co. of Peoria works on the ceiling grid for the new Tiskilwa Library currently under construction on Main Street. Ground-breaking ceremonies were held July 19 on a $1 million project to renovate the current library into a community room and construct a 3,800-square-foot addition to house the library’s books, DVDs and audios. The project was awarded a $504,241.40 grant from the state library.
