Wauconda Area Library patrons would like easier access to the building from the parking lot, newly released survey data reveals. Nearly 55 percent of people surveyed in the fall classified improved building access as an issue of "highest priority" or "higher priority." Patrons now must climb a flight of stairs or use a long ramp to enter the building at 801 N. Main St. More than 2,000 people completed the survey, the results of which were shared with the Daily Herald. While improved access was of great interest, people weren't as keen on the idea of an outdoor reading garden or courtyard. Only about 37 percent said such an area is an issue of "highest priority" or "higher priority." Less than 28 percent of respondents said creating a drive-up window for picking up materials should be a priority. Those three possible improvements were specified in the survey because library officials are developing a construction plan that would include all of them in phases, Director Tom Kern said. … [Read more...] about Wauconda library patrons want better access to building, survey reveals
