Exciting news! OPL.ca is getting a makeover and we're launching a new website on June 23. Please expect some downtime on June 22-23. Details

Newly renovated White Oaks Branch reopens on Monday, September 17, 2018

The Oakville Public Library is excited to welcome the public back to the newly renovated White Oaks Library Branch on Monday, September 17, 2018.

Identified as an action item in the library’s 2016-19 Strategic Plan, the White Oaks Branch renovation focused on the library’s goal to transform our virtual and physical spaces to encourage creativity, collaboration and discovery.

The newly renovated space will have a whole new look, with an increased lounge area, additional seating, added workspaces, new carpets and fresh paint!

During the renovation of the White Oaks Branch, a temporary Library Depot was set up at Town Hall. Now that the White Oaks Branch is opening to the public, the Town Hall Library Depot will permanently close on Wednesday, September 12, 2018. As such, there will be no library service for White Oaks from September 13 to September 16, until the opening of the new branch. If you are expecting a hold in this time period, please note that the dates for hold pickup will be extended, and you can pick up your holds at the White Oaks Branch any time after September 17.

Please visit this page or follow OPL on social media for the latest updates on the White Oaks Branch renovation and reopening.
