Winnetka Elevator Out of Service

Our 30-year-old elevator is due for a service upgrade. This comprehensive overhaul will involve the replacement of all its mechanics, including the motor and lift, and the installation of a brand-new cab featuring fresh paneling, lighting, flooring, and more. This revitalization project is expected to take approximately four weeks to complete.

While the elevator is unavailable staff will be happy to help patrons access materials from the mezzanine and The Studio.
