The revitalization of the Central Library has begun. The Central Library will close for several weeks of heavy construction work starting on May 24 and a temporary library location will “pop up” nearby in Citi Plaza.  Full schedule and details can be found here.

Pop Up Central will be located across from the Bulk Barrel in Citi Plaza, close to the Central Library location.  At Pop Up Central, you can pick your Central holds, borrow from a small selection of books, feature film DVDs and children’s picture book bags, return materials and pay fines and fees. A limited number of internet computer stations and a printer will also be available. Those parking underground at Citi Plaza will be eligible for 2 hours free parking validation with presentation of your Library Card at Pop Up Central.

The Central Library construction closure schedule is broken into two periods:  Central Library is closed from May 24 to June 3 and from June 13 to June 24. During these periods, Pop Up Central will offer service.  In between these two closure periods, from June 4 to June 11, Central Library will be open, with regular hours and Pop Up Central will be closed. The Library’s 15 Branch locations are open with regular hours throughout construction.  All locations are closed for Victoria Day on May 23.
