The Laval public library’s Émile-Nelligan branch in Laval-des-Rapides reopened on April 19, following an eight-month-long beauty treatment.
The upgrade at the branch included a complete restructuring of the library users’ areas. There are now more work tables and comfortable chairs to sit in while consulting library materials. A separate room is now available for the use of groups as well as for cultural activities.
As well, a space to exhibit art installations has been set up on the first floor with professional-quality equipment from which to hang spotlight systems. The branch’s entrance has been reconfigured and floor coverings (ceramic, carpet and linoleum) have been replaced in order to embellish the premises while making them more secure. The washrooms have also undergone a renewal.
Library users will also be pleased to know that the branch’s usual schedule of programming will be resuming in May. A brochure will be available at all the Laval public library system’s branches beginning on May 2. There’s also something else new at all the Laval public library branches this year: registration can now be done online.
