Loussac Renewal

Donate here to the capital campaign to renew the Loussac.

The Z.J. Loussac renewal began in May 2015 and is scheduled to be finished in early 2017. The first part of the construction replacing the antiquated book drop and creating new meeting rooms on the 2nd floor is almost finished.

Now comes the most anticipated part the removal of the unsafe stairs and patio, opening up the entrance to a pedestrian walkway. This construction will have the greatest impact on both the staff and the public. For about a week the library will be closed as the entrance is moved from the 2nd floor to a temporary space on the 1st floor. The Assembly entrance will be a temporary entrance as the front of the library is transformed.

All the branches will remain open during this time.

  • More spaces for community gathering, meeting facilitation and group learning.

  • An attractive, easy to navigate building, with increased natural light for a safe and welcoming experience for users of all ages and backgrounds. A building that is more efficient to operate.
