Background
According to the City of Mississauga's Strategic Plan, one of the City's strategic goals is to build and maintain its infrastructure for its citizens and for generations to come. A sound, functional and attractive infrastructure is integral in completing its neighbourhoods, as we build a City for the 21st century.

The 2004 Library Master Plan called for the redevelopment of the Lorne Park Branch Library due to age, mechanical lifecycle issues and functionality. The original structure opened in 1967 with an addition built in 1974 and further renovations in 1988/89. The 12,000-foot facility services 23,000 local residents.

A renovation program for this older facility in the south of Mississauga has been reviewed and is ready for implementation.

Objectives/Benefits
The scope of work includes addressing sanitary piping, improved air distribution, replacement of baseboard heaters and fan-forced electric heaters, window replacement, interior lighting deficiencies, interior and exterior Closed Circuit Television, circulation area modifications, signs, shelving, painting, and the addition of a quiet study room and reconfiguration of the staff workplace.

Renovations of Lorne Park Branch Library will enable the building to remain in good repair while meeting customer needs. The economic life of the building will be extended; energy savings will be realized, air quality improvements would benefit customers and staff, closed circuit television will increase safety; staff workspaces will be designed to accommodate today's technology; customers will have an updated, welcoming facility to gather, borrow materials and use resources. Increased library usage is expected as a result of physical improvements to the building, benefiting residents, especially youth and older adults.
