Major renovations to the Worthington Street East entrance of the North Bay Public Library are about to get started.
Officials say work begins on Monday, Sept. 11 and includes demolition of the existing stairs and ramp.
The project is expected to last through the fall with the library only accessible through the McIntyre Street entrance during construction.
“The McIntyre doors will be open as of 10 am on Sept. 11,” states a release. “Through the duration of the construction, the after-hours drop box will not be available.”
The library says all items will need to be returned inside the library, either to the circulation desks or to an internal drop box located near the Children’s Department.
According to the city’s final 2023 capital budget, $490,000 is earmarked for projects at the library this year, including the rehabilitation of the Worthington Street East entrance.
