Branch Enhancements

The Oakville Public Library maintains and renews its facilities to support their role as vital, welcoming and supportive community hubs, places to meet, learn, create and discover.

OPL enhances its spaces to meet the growing and changing needs of Oakville’s residents.

Changes are coming to Central Branch!

Starting October 5, Central Branch will undergo a refresh to create a more inviting space for customers. Renovations will take place on both the Adult and Children’s floors and will be completed by the end of 2020.

What is changing:

  • New flexible, modular lounge seating will replace the large front desk near the entrance to the Adult floor.
  • One consolidated service desk on each floor will enhance the customer experience.
  • Wall-mounted touchscreen tablets will enable customers to more easily browse the catalogue.
  • Staff and public areas at the entrance to the Adult floor will be physically separated to allow for staff workflow optimization.

Construction work will be done when the branch is closed. There will be no planned disruptions to library services.
