Lake Villa District Library Seeks Local Artists to Enhance Facility

Rettinger, along with board member Pat Gallagher, two area artists and two library staff members, comprise the committee that will review submissions.

The new library building, which opened in August of 2019, is 66,000 square feet, has stunning views and plenty of natural light.
