- Using the Library
One sure sign of spring? Roadwork starts up again! From time to time in the coming months, access to the park and library may be difficult during normal construction hours, Monday to Friday, 7am to 7pm, and transit will be detoured at times. Construction is expected to end in Fall 2017. View project timeline
