Lake Villa District Library IL is a $25 million vibrant community center featuring a Youth Services
Department, imaginative youth play areas, computer room, and is equipped with integrated A/V

abundance of resources that aims to not only enrich the youth but will also extend to the adults
in the community too.

HDI’s Circum Railing system was selected for the library’s interior stairways to highlight the
abundant windows along the west side of the building. Constructed with mechanical threaded
connections ensuring an exact, precise, and secure fitting the Circum railing system will be
ready to serve Lake Villa’s 40,000 residents and their heavy foot traffic.

For the building’s exterior, HDI’s Circum Round railing system with perforated stainless-steel infill panels was installed along the library’s outside terraces overlooking the beautiful landscape that includes 2000 planted trees and various community walking paths. The outside seating areas will serve as a breakaway area to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family and during the winter months residents will be able to warm up while they read by the outdoor fireplaces.

The Circum Round post railing system installed around the outside terrace seating area and
balconies was side weld mounted to provide unsurpassed holding power. The perforated
stainless-steel infill panels provide unobstructed views from a distance without sacrificing
security. The perforated stainless-steel infill panel clamps include a retainer pin with protective
gasket for added security.

All railing systems are fully assembled in our Pennsylvania factory
then deconstructed into fully assembled sections to ensure the most efficient installation.
Lake Villa District library has established itself beyond a library where people will not only
connect with resources, but with each other. With Lake Villa’s population expected to increase
25% by 2040, the state-of-the-art library will be set to serve the future generations.
