Other Additions

Green building features such as solar panels and rainwater harvesting are a priority for this proposed restoration. An event/exhibition space on the left of the building will serve as a temporary home for artists and creatives looking to showcase their work at the library. An external toilet block will be added (the library currently has no toilets); and a cafe intended to generate revenue to the library is included in the plan.

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.
