The Oak Park Board of Trustees has approved spending up to $24,600 to repair the elevator at the Dole Learning Center, 255 Augusta St.

The elevator at the facility failed in late August on the same day the building's air-conditioning went out. The building is owned by the village of Oak Park and not the library system, leaving the expense to the village.

"The main underground hydraulic cylinder for the Dole Learning Center elevator has failed, leaving the elevator inoperable," a village memo states. "This is considered an emergency repair to allow the elevator to be placed back in service." 

The failure of the air conditioning closed the library for several days but was unrelated to the elevator failure.
