Central Construction Update December/January

Construction hoarding on all floors has come down, allowing the sun to shine in and making it much easier to find your way around.  Washroom renovations are complete, with access available on all floors!  Public computers are available on the 2nd and 3rd floors.  Visitor passes and accessible technology are available on the 2nd floor.

Construction Update: Construction continues on the grand staircase and on both floors.  Major construction, including work on the staircase, is expected to be completed in March, which is ahead of schedule.  Access to all floors continues to be available by elevator.  The temporary 2nd floor entrance from Citi Plaza will remain open until major construction has been completed.

Please note that the Music CD collection has moved to the 2nd floor and the newspaper and magazine collections have moved to the main floor, on the Dundas Street side.  Daily papers are still available from our help desks.  We are happy to help you find what you need. Please ask staff for help or call ahead before you visit to 519-661-4600.

The Spriet Family Children's Library has moved back into its newly renovated space, which includes an additional program room.  All Children's programs will take place in the Spriet Family Children's Library space.  There are washrooms available in the Spriet Family Children's Library.

This work comes as we near the final stages of the Central Library Revitalization Project. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to providing you with improved washrooms, along with many other exciting changes. Construction continues to be slightly ahead of schedule and we look forward to unveiling newly revitalized spaces over the next few months.  We are happy to help you find what you need during construction.  Please call ahead to  519-661-4600 or ask staff for help when you arrive..
