St. Vital Library temporarily closing for renovations
Library is expected to reopen in the fall
St. Vital Library will be closing its doors until the fall, as renovations get underway on the heritage building.
The library, located on Fermor Avenue, will close Saturday to finish upgrades that were started last year.
The library already has a new elevator installed, but the building will be closed as crews upgrade the entrance, renovate washrooms, improve shelving and add a second book return.

The total estimated budget for the renovation is $2.6 million.
