A NEW LIBRARY EXPERIENCE IS HERE
The Main Branch of the Brantford Public Library has been transformed into more accessible space that encourages creativity and discovery and provides a place for the community to connect.
Highlights of the project
A new all-glass façade that fronts on Colborne Street and adds nearly 500 square feet of space to the Library
- A new more accessible entrance with automatic sliding doors
- Improvements to the Main Branch's HVAC system
New customer service desks and easy-to-use self-checkout machines (at both the Main Branch and St. Paul Branch) A large designated Maker area designed to advance digital literacy and innovation for people of all ages
- A piece of public art on the exterior of the library honouring world-renowned artist Lawren Harris.
This project adds to the recent rejuvenation of Brantford’s downtown, which includes the breathtaking Sanderson Centre, a bustling Farmers Market, the event-filled Harmony Square and the 130,000 square foot YMCA fitness centre.
