Bridlewood Library Relocates to Larger Space

New location within Bridlewood Mall first step in renovation plan

TORONTO, Jan. 19 /CNW/ - The Bridlewood Branch of Toronto Public Library has moved to a new, larger location in the Bridlewood Mall. The Library will reopen to the public on Friday, January 21 at 9:00 am.

Funded by mall management, the move of Bridlewood Branch (2900 Warden Avenue) required modest leasehold improvements to allow the branch to operate in the new location. The new space is 47% larger than the previous one and vastly improves the library's ability to serve the busy Bridlewood community.

Future phases in the project will include a potential further expansion and a complete renovation and retrofit of the library starting in 2012. The renovation will be funded by Section 37 contributions and development charges. Public consultation on the upcoming full renovation will continue throughout 2011. 

The relocation and expansion of Bridlewood Branch is part of Toronto Public Library's ongoing building revitalization plan.  In 2010, Torontonians benefited from the reopening of three branches after renovations: including Thorncliffe, Riverdale and Cedarbrae, which re-opened December 6.  A major retrofit and renovation of Northern District Branch is almost complete and the branch will welcome customers back early in February (announcement coming soon!).

Toronto Public Library is the world's busiest urban public library system. Every year, more than 18 million people visit our 99 branches and borrow more than 32 million items.
