Mill Park Library is TRANSFORMING!

The Mill Park Library has begun a transformation. Our renovation plans include a beautiful outdoor deck so that the community can enjoy the wonderful outdoor space.The black deck with curved railing will look sleek and be a shady retreat for everyone to enjoy a cup of coffee, read the newspaper, or simply relax. As of today, the joists are in! 

Our team can't wait to see children enjoy the space as well. Enhancing their library experience with fresh air and sunshine will add a whole new dimension to each and every visit to the library.

The new deck is just the beginning of the journey! As of Monday, May 6th, Mill Park Library will be closed for the biggest changes to be made. Chancez Cafe will be fully integrated and installed, opening five days a week and offering amazing coffees and freshly baked goodies. The children's area will be more spacious allowing for prams and comfort of parents attending regular Story Times. A sensory cubby house for kids to explore and find a quiet space will also be built.

More spaces to collaborate, meet, study, and work are all incorporated into the new layout and design. The entryway will be a marketplace highlighting our fabulous collection, too tempting not to borrow and enjoy. The new carpet, paint colours and technology will bring this award-winning building to the forefront of library design and innovation.
