Renovations Complete at Richview Branch

More efficient customer service and improved accessibility

TORONTO, April 12 /CNW/ - After months of hard work, Toronto Public Library is ready to introduce the community to its new and improved Richview Branch at a customer appreciation event on Monday, April 18, 2011 from 3:30 -6:00 p.m.

City librarian Jane Pyper will be on hand to meet library customers and thank them for their patience during the renovation.  Branch staff will also be available to help orient customers to all the new library enhancements.

The renovation project, which was made possible in part through federal infrastructure financing, involved a complete renovation of the first floor. Self-service technologies, including express check-out and check-in will improve customer service. There are new fully accessible washrooms on the main floor and barrier-free access to all areas of the library.

There is now increased access to technology for research, learning, working and recreation and new group study workstations. The branch has a welcoming "urban living room" layout with comfortable seating and lounge area; a vibrant Teen Zone; and an eye-catching entrance to the popular children's area.  A significant service enhancement is the addition of new Friday evening hours.

Media are welcome to attend at any time during the event.
