The purpose of this renovation is to ensure ease of access to the bridge that will link the Library building with the new Student Learning Centre (SLC) at Yonge and Gould. Work on retrofitting the entrance doors is nearly complete, and the hoarding will soon be removed. Once the hoarding is removed, the doors can be placed on hold-open during the Library’s operating hours, creating a single entrance/exit to the Library. New security gates have also been installed near the entrance/exit, in anticipation of the flow of traffic between the Library and the Student Learning Centre.
The next phase of renovations will involves securing the former exit doors, which are currently functioning as a temporary entrance and exit.
