The expansion of Milton Public Library’s (MPL) Main library branch has been expedited to begin this year, which is five years earlier than originally planned.

At a meeting on Dec. 6, 2021, council unanimously approved the expansion of MPL’s branch located at 1010 Main St. E.

The expansion is expected to open to the public in late 2024 and construction is set to begin in 2023, with the planning phase currently underway.

“I am thrilled that Town of Milton Council has unanimously supported our request to move ahead with the expansion to the Main Library, five years earlier than planned. In doing so, Council members recognized the importance of Milton Public Library to Miltonians,” said Mark Williams, Chief Librarian and CEO.

“Through the increased size of the Main Library, by overhauling the layout and design, and in bringing to Milton a slew of new services, we look forward to ensuring that the new Main library helps us to build on our successes, whilst we continue to inspire.”

The design is set to follow the approach at MPL’s newest Sherwood branch, which is focused on service innovation to provide ultimate customer satisfaction.

Patrons will also have access to a wider range of services at the expanded Main library, many of which will be available at MPL for the first time.
