Kleinburg Library Renovations

During the 2012 building audit of Kleinburg Library, repair concerns requiring attention to the building were highlighted.  The scope of work identified for the renovation that is scheduled to take place in fall of 2013 includes:

  • Repairs to the roof, external brickwork and concrete
  • Window replacement
  • Updating heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems
  • Installing an exterior AODA compliant ramp (providing access to the library’s lower level and outdoor reading garden)
  • Addition of southern parking spaces and an outdoor reading garden

The project has been reviewed with Heritage Vaughan Committee; received support by the Vaughan Public Library Board and has received Council’s approval at the June 25th Council meeting.

Nino Rico of NRA Inc. has been retained as a project architect for the Kleinburg Library renovation.  Below are selected renderings of the project encompassing the scope of the planned renovations.

The timeline needed to carry out the scope of renovations and repairs will require intermittent disruptions to services and the branch will be closed to the public during portions of the renovations project.  Detailed information on library closures will be shared with the public when renovation dates have been firmed up.
