In the latest newsletter from the Crystal Lake Library, a map is published showing how the institution intends to expand its footprint north to the corner of Crystal Lake and McHenry Avenues.
That would give it the entire eastern side of the northern most block of McHenry Avenue from Paddock Street, where the library is now located, to West Crystal Lake Avenue.
One can see that the current library would be demolished and the space turned into a parking lot.
A possibility for additional parking exists to the east next to the little house where County Board member Ernest Schroeder used to live.
His home remains, but surrounding it is a parking lot owned by Bethany Lutheran Church (where I mowed the grass while memorizing how to count to 100 in German).
