Update: Work is starting at the Locke Street Library!  The branch will close Saturday March 3, 2018 at 5pm for approximately 7 months.  During the closure, the Bookmobile will visit Melrose United Church Parking Lot on Friday's between 10am and 12pm.  See message below from the Library Staff. 

Thank you to everyone who voted for Locke Street Library Improvements through our Ward 1 Participatory Budgeting Process.  We are pleased to report that the project will include a new entry vestibule, renovations to create a barrier free washroom and an improved outdoor reading area.  The Locke Street Library Renovation Project is partially funded through Aidan's Area Rating Funding.

Message from the Library:

To our Locke customers,

The Locke branch will close Saturday March 3rd at 5pm for a renovation project.  The branch is expected to be closed for approximately 7 months.  We apologize for the inconvenience and want to provide customers with options.  During this period customers may use other HPL locations e.g. Westdale, Central , Terryberry.  To also assist there will be a temporary weekly Bookmobile stop on Fridays 10-12am in the Melrose United Church parking lot.  The first Bookmobile visit will be on Friday March 9th 10-12am and will continue weekly through the construction period.

All Locke customer holds pickup locations will be changed to Westdale after the closure.  However if you prefer a different pickup location e.g. Terryberry, Bookmobile @ Melrose, please talk with staff who will be glad to make the change for you.

Thank you so much for your patience during this renovation period.  To ensure the Locke branch is positioned to serve the community in the future, the project will include replacing the small vestibule with a larger accessible entry, an expanded barrier free washroom and a covered outdoor seating area with Wi-Fi.

In order to help serve families with young children during the closure, a Family Storytime will be held at Melrose United Church.
