Glen Abbey Branch Renovation

Oakville Public Library’s Glen Abbey Branch will close for renovations on Monday, June 3, 2019. The branch will be closed for approximately six months. During the closure, OPL will open a temporary Depot inside the Glen Abbey Community Centre.

At this Depot customers can browse a selection of popular materials, pick-up holds, return library items, print, scan and more.

The renovation stems from the changing use and role of the branch, and the increased demand for library services, programs and collections in the thriving and diverse surrounding neighbourhoods.

Customers can expect many exciting additions and changes brought by the renovation, including:

  • A new space featuring technology and materials to inspire creativity in the community
  • Flexible program and study spaces
  • A refreshed collection of books and other library materials
  • Improved operational efficiency to serve customers better

The newly renovated branch will be a community and cultural hub, attracting customers of all ages and increasing the potential for community partnerships.

The last time the Glen Abbey Branch closed for renovations was almost fourteen years ago.

Starting May 1, donated items will no longer be accepted at the Glen Abbey Branch, in preparation for the closure.

  • The Glen Abbey Depot will be open within the Glen Abbey Community Centre for the duration of the closure
  • The closest full-service branches to Glen Abbey are Woodside and Sixteen Mile
  • The closest Holds Depot is located inside Sixteen Mile Sports Complex.
