Seminole Branch Receives Some TLC

Windsor residents who haven’t stopped by Seminole Branch recently are in for a pleasant surprise when they return.  New shelving, new flooring, a new external book drop and new seating provide a welcoming environment to area customers looking to ‘beat the heat’ and at the same time check out the many resources available which inform, entertain and educate.

Representatives from the City of Windsor and Windsor Public Library gathered at the branch on Thursday, August 16 to officially reveal the renovations.

Windsor Mayor and Library Board Chair, Drew Dilkens, was on hand to get the festivities underway.  “We’re here today to applaud these improvements to the overall library experience.  I’m sure this fresh, new look, together with the resources and technology already available here, will be a huge hit with the neighbourhood,” he said.  “Ward 5 Councillor, Ed Sleiman, together with library administration is to be congratulated for providing the motivation for bringing about this positive change.”

Annually, WPL staff selects a branch to receive a small scale ‘face lift’ to improve the customer experience.  Renovations to Seminole Branch cost over $73,000.

    Positive news for the neighbourhood, but some seem to forget that it was the very same WPL Board & WPL Administration who tried to permanently close the WPL Seminole Branch not to long ago. Always interesting the Windsor Mayor and local Councillor photo opportunity timing during a municipal election campaign. Perhaps the WPL could run photos of the dimensional measurements of the WPL (Mayor’s absurd Plan) plan to move the MAIN Library to the 5th floor of new City Hall and have the two pose in front of that as well!
