Update: Exciting news! Our LED energy-efficient lighting upgrades at the downtown Mishawaka Library are moving into phase three. On Monday, December 11, replacement lighting will begin on the lower level in our adult non-fiction area. During this time, patrons cannot access materials in this area until the replacement lighting is complete; however, the computer lab will remain open. The new LED lighting will increase the library’s energy efficiency and provide everyone with improved lighting. Make sure to continue to bookmark this MPHPL article.

MPHPL is excited to announce a significant upgrade to lighting at the Mishawaka Library is coming soon! New LED energy-efficient lighting will replace outdated fluorescent lighting. The project will begin Monday, September 18, and is slated to continue for several months. The upgrades will start in the lower level meeting rooms; therefore, meeting rooms are unavailable for booking at this time.
“This project aims to improve the library’s lighting with the latest LED technology. Replacing outdated lighting will impact long-term electrical costs, decrease our environmental footprint and enhance sustainability efforts,” says MPHPL Director Donna Meeks.
The new LED lighting will increase Mishawaka Library’s energy efficiency and brighten library spaces for visitors, patrons and staff!
