Clarington Library, Museums & Archives welcomes everybody, and we want to ensure that people of every ability are able to access services and resources at all library branches.
The Orono Library is a public library operating in a Victorian house that does not meet accessibility standards and therefore requires renovation on both the outside and inside to bring it up to legislated AODA guidelines. This will include new doors, new ramping, new rails, and the installation of an accessible universal washroom. This project is a spectacular opportunity to blend heritage and modernity while ensuring all residents have barrier-free access to their public library.
The project is being undertaken in response to community needs and feedback, and with support from the Municipality of Clarington.
