Ground Floor

This floor, like the rest of the building, will undergo a full refurbishment with the goal to increase the capacity of the space by maximising the use of space. Repair of the skylight, relocation of the reception desk and theĀ  introduction of a secondary wheelchair accessible entrance are some of the proposed changes. The antique fittings in this room, and across the library will be restored and re-installed and the room redesigned in order for it to be able to host a myriad of gatherings.

These proposed restoration plans are a result of several months of consultation with the public, library management and stakeholders as well as industry experts. These plans are also available at the library for public viewing and input. The amendments to the McMillan Memorial Library are proposed to ensure that the building remains structurally sound, safe and accessible to all including those who are differently abled. Energy efficiency is key for this restoration as is the installation of features that allow for multipurpose use and consequently, revenue generation. All proposed renovations are in line with the guidelines for the restoration of heritage buildings.
