Demolition work at front of Library now ongoing

May 5, 2014 -

Demolition of the elevated concrete podium along the east side of the Library commenced Tuesday, May 6 and will last for approximately two weeks.

During this initial demolition phase of the construction, it will be very noisy both inside and outside of the Library building. We regret this inconvenience, but note this short term disruption is unavoidable in making these necessary improvements to the Library facilities, which will address both safety and accessibility issues.
