Windsor residents who haven’t stopped by Seminole Branch recently are in for a pleasant surprise when they return. New shelving, new flooring, a new external book drop and new seating provide a welcoming environment to area customers looking to ‘beat the heat’ and at the same time check out the many resources available which inform, entertain and educate.
Representatives from the City of Windsor and Windsor Public Library gathered at the branch on Thursday, August 16 to officially reveal the renovations.
Windsor Mayor and Library Board Chair, Drew Dilkens, was on hand to get the festivities underway. “We’re here today to applaud these improvements to the overall library experience. I’m sure this fresh, new look, together with the resources and technology already available here, will be a huge hit with the neighbourhood,” he said. “Ward 5 Councillor, Ed Sleiman, together with library administration is to be congratulated for providing the motivation for bringing about this positive change.”
Annually, WPL staff selects a branch to receive a small scale ‘face lift’ to improve the customer experience. Renovations to Seminole Branch cost over $73,000.
