Edmonton’s Stanley Milner Library to Shut Down Until 2020 for Massive Overhaul • Last Day Open to Public is December 31st

If you planned on checking out the downtown Edmonton library, you best do it soon.

EDMONTON — As most Edmontonians have already heard by now, the Stanley Milner Library, located in the heart of downtown Edmonton, is finally getting its upgrade to a more modern development.

Saturday, December 31, 2016; or in other words, New Years Eve, will be the final day of the library’s opening to the public for use.

This library is considered to be Edmonton’s flagship location, which gets the most foot traffic of them all.

 

Here are a couple renders of the exterior-to-be:

The good news is that this library is finally getting its much-needed upgrade.

The bad news however, is that the library will be entirely shut down to the public for up to three years before it re-opens — and that’s if everything goes on schedule.


When the newly renovated library has its grand opening in the year 2020, it’ll have a children’s library that is 3x larger than its current, hands-on science, technology, engineering and math activities, new music and arts, an indoor play area, and a beautiful new eye-catching exterior and interior alike.

According to Skyrise Edmonton,

The exterior building envelope is pulled outwards to reference key civic moments, while glazing invites passersby to view the activities being undertaken within its walls.

Here’s a look at an interior render:
