Caseyville Elementary School 6255a14a1f586

New elementary school and public library facilities will be built side by side in Caseyville, Ill.

April 12, 2022
The Collinsville (Ill.) school district and the Caseyville Public Library District are partnering on the project.

The Collinsville (Ill.) district is constructing a $19.2 million elementary school to replace an existing elementary in Caseyville.

The plans call for a Caseyville Public Library building to be constructed alongside the new Caseyville Elementary School, reports The Edwardsville Intelligencer

The existing Caseyville Elementary was built in 1935. The existing library, built in 1998, sits just outside the existing Caseyville Elementary grounds. 

A joint agreement will enable the library district to focus its funds on expanding staff and programs, instead of building maintenance and upkeep. The library will gain 1,500 square feet, making it 50% larger than the existing location.

The new facility will have a study room, meeting room to accommodate 25 to 30 people, and a special children’s zone and interactive area.

Caseyville students will have access to the library daily from 8 to 11 a.m. before it opens to the public. The new school and library facilities will be built directly behind the existing building, which will be razed and become parking lots and green space.  

Both buildings are expected to be finished in 2023. 

FGMArchitects is the architect, and Holland Construction Services is the contractor.
