Central Revitalization News

We are hard at work finalizing the construction schedule for the first phase of the Central Library Revitalization Project.  We believe that project construction will likely begin in May and will continue for approximately 12 months. We expect that there will be some changes to programs, hours and use of space at Central Library over the course of construction and as the project progresses we will keep you up-to-date here on our website.  You are also welcome to call us before you visit at 519-661-4600 for up-to-date information. Our goal through this project is to ensure that our collections and resources are available to you as much as is possible and we will work hard to ensure that you are able to use the Central Library as much as is possible during the project.

As with any renovation project, there may be times when temporary changes are required, short closures of the building are required, and an increase in noise levels or other construction-related issues affect your use of the space.

Please check the Central Renew section of the website regularly for notice of any changes or interruptions to services, programs, spaces or access to Central Library (including the Children’s Library) during construction. Once construction has begun, an alert with detailed information will appear at the top of the Central Renew section. You can also choose to call us at 519-661-4600 before you visit for up-to-date news about Central Library services during construction.

We look forward to sharing a new and improved Central Library with you and apologize for any inconvenience you may experience as we embark on this much-needed revitalization project.
