Children's Library Refresh

This spring, the Children’s Library @Central is getting a makeover. Improvement work runs March through June.

From April 29 through June 3, during this phase of the project:

  • No access to the Discovery Centre
  • No access to children's computers & early literacy stations
  • Limited access to picture books
  • Limited access to play areas

How to get to around the closed area to the open Children's Area:

  • 2nd floor: go through DVD area and quiet study zone to the current Children's non-fiction area
  • via 3rd floor: take back elevator to the 2nd floor

The improvement area will be barricaded during this period, and we ask that all visitors keep outside of the barriers for your personal safety.

Thank you so much for your ongoing patience and cooperation during this improvement project. We know you'll be thrilled with the results!
