It’s happening! The Little Falls branch refresh project!
On Saturday, July 9, 2016, the Little Falls branch closes to the public for approximately six months, The branch manager, Ken Lewis, along with the staff will be waving to the public as they exit through the doors, and at the same time communicating to them, “We will see you in approximately six months! Keep well.”
The closure of the Little Falls branch, and the Davis branch a week later, July 16, 2016, comes as a result of a capital improvements project program which provides “key maintenance of selected libraries every year over a seven year cycle, rather than waiting to do major extensive work over a longer timeframe.” This also allows library buildings to get significant and timely updates without having to close for the lengthy time it takes for a full renovation.
Both the Little Falls Library, and the Davis Library, are the second set of libraries in which “refresh” work will be done. The Twinbrook branch and the Kensington Park branch have been the first set of libraries which have gone through this process. Visit those libraries if you can so that you can envision what the refresh holds for Little Falls.
