Renovations at the Kleinburg Library are well under way. The library’s collections, as well as its furniture and equipment, were all moved to storage and the builders are on site. As of this week, the covered concrete steps to the lower level at the front of the library have been removed. The fire and emergency stairs and the roof ladder on the north side of the building have also been removed. The ceilings have been exposed to allow access to electrical cabling and some work has been done on the floors to provide access to the plumbing. Finally, a dividing wall at the end of the basement corridor has been removed to make way for a new entrance that will provide access to the lower floor of the library from the exterior on the east side.
