Notice of Disruption

Unanticipated hydro work at the southwest corner of Major Mackenzie Drive W and Yonge Street has closed the walkway leading to the Library. Pedestrian access to Central Library is impacted.

Foot traffic is being re-directed to surrounding streets (Major Mackenzie Dr. W) to access an alternate entrance to the building. The nearest accessible entrance can be accessed by walking west on Major Mackenzie Drive E. and south on Atkinson Street.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
