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 Port Credit Branch Library, due to age, mechanical lifecycle issues and functionality. Opened in 1962, further renovations took place in 1992. Located in historic Port Credit, along the banks of the Credit River in beautiful Port Credit Memorial Park, this library services 60,000 local residents.

A renovation program for this 7,600 square foot, older facility in the south of Mississauga has been reviewed and is ready for implementation.

Objectives/Benefits
Components of the project include upgrades to roof, windows, HVAC, water and sewer piping and carpet, interior and exterior Closed Circuit Television, circulation area modifications, replacement of aged furnishings, signs and shelving, painting, addition of a quiet study room and reconfiguration of the staff workplace.

Renovations of the Port Credit 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, a new HVAC system will improve air quality; washrooms will be improved, exterior ramps will be replaced to address accessibility issues, 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. Renovations will also address the changing demographics and the electronic needs of customers.
