The Pierre Berton Resource Library has been receiving a makeover ready for the summer. Two of the four circular reference desks have been removed to make room for a new merchandising area and an extension of the silent study space. In June 2011, the Welcome Desk was closed as a functioning reference desk, and has been re-purposed a few times over the past 10 months. It’s now been removed, and carpet re-laid to finish off the space. The old Business Desk on the 2nd floor has succumbed to the same fate. The next few jobs in line for the summer makeover are the creation of an art wall, and the construction of the new Reading Lounge which creates an area for a new space for teens in the library.
In November 2011, Dufferin Clark Library installed new sliding doors to its front entrance. Now it’s more convenient for customers on wheelchairs or with strollers to enter the library without having to press any buttons. In addition, the program room also received a new coat of paint, giving it a fresh new look!
