Construction on the new 6,455 square foot library and heritage centre in the heart of Cayuga’s downtown core has been underway since June 2018. The new, fully accessible building will accommodate both library and museum collections/services/programs, providing visitors with an extremely unique learning and cultural experience.
The museum space will encompass 1,400 sq. ft., with 800 sq. ft. dedicated to an exhibit & display area and 600 sq. ft. designated for local history and genealogical research. Hard copy genealogical records & information will be available within the designated genealogy space, as will new technologies that assist with research. Heritage programming will be offered for both adults and children.
Valued library services and spaces – including book borrowing, workshops, public access computers and meeting rooms – will be available and improved in the new state-of-the-art building. Educational programming, including storytimes, author talks, guest lectures and themed workshops will continue to be offered onsite by both museum and library staff in a new, multi-purpose community room.
