Staggered floor closures at Millennium Library begin Monday

Staggered floor closures at Millennium Library begin Monday

Improvements will result in lower energy use and GHG emissions

Released: 3:28 p.m.

Winnipeg, MB – The City of Winnipeg is temporarily closing each floor of the Millennium Library (251 Donald St.) on a staggered basis to accommodate renovations, beginning with the second floor on Monday, August 15.

The closures are required to replace over 100,000 sq. ft. of carpet, install new energy-efficient LED lighting, and to replace the service desk on the fourth floor.

“Small changes can add up to big improvements in the overall experience for Winnipeggers at the Millennium Library,” said Sherri Rollins, Chairperson of the Standing Policy Committee on Protection, Community Services and Parks. “The City is investing in renovations to improve this busy community hub for information and leisure and increase energy efficiency, two issues that Winnipeggers have identified as priorities.”

With a longer lifespan and smart features including the ability to automatically adjust levels based on occupancy and daylight, the new LED lighting will contribute to an approximate 55 percent reduction in facility energy use, and a 10.2-tonne reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. All existing carpet will also be recycled or reclaimed for work in future projects.

Each of the four floor closures will last approximately four weeks, during which time a selection of material from the closed floor will be moved to an alternate floor. Key services such as borrowing, returns, information services, and Community Connections will remain available throughout the project. The $761,290 project is expected to be completed by late 2022.
