The proposal for an expansion to our Public Library will allow the following:

  • The overall size of the Library increases by nearly 80%.
  • Children’s Library is on the main floor. Its size is increased by over 50%, resulting in more space for books and computers and more play areas.
  • The new scheme has more than triple the amount of space available for reading, with a variety of reading environments.
  • Circulation, Administration and Processing activities are now centrally located on the main floor, allowing for more efficient use of staff and flow of materials.
  • The amount of space available for library programs more than doubles. This includes a variety of spaces, from small group study rooms to large flexible program spaces.
  • The number of fixed computer access stations doubles, while data access points throughout the library will increases internet access.
