Service Disruption Notice: Elevator at Dunnville Library

New elevator system to be installed at the Dunnville Library.

HALDIMAND COUNTY, ON – Replacement of the current elevator system, originally installed in 1983, will commence this March at Haldimand County Public Library Dunnville Branch (317 Chestnut St.).  Replacement work is scheduled to begin Thursday, March 7 and will  continue to approximately April 30, 2024. 

The branch will remain open to the public throughout this process. No elevator service will be available for the duration of the project and there will also be no access to the Alder Street entrance and its stairwell to the second floor. Visitors will be able to enter and exit the building through the Chestnut Street doors or parking lot (rear) doors and use an alternate staircase to the second floor children’s department.  Staff will readily retrieve materials from the second floor for individuals who experience mobility limitations.  Alternatively, patrons may request curbside pickup services and can always remotely browse the library’s collection, place holds, and renew items through the library’s online catalogue. Library programs, including March Break Children’s activities, Babysitting Courses, and Book Clubs will proceed as scheduled in the Garfield Disher Room (main floor). Some noise and dust is expected throughout the project and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Project-related noises may also impact telephone calls.

To find construction updates, access the library catalogue, or learn about library programs and events, please visit our website or follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
