David Tilson Congratulates Orangeville Public Library On Renovations

October 06, 2016

OTTAWA, ON – David Tilson, Member of Parliament for Dufferin-Caledon, today delivered the following statement in the House of Commons to mark the beginning of renovations at the historic Orangeville Public Library:

Mr. Speaker, I’m pleased to rise today to congratulate the Orangeville Public Library on the commencement of their Canada 150 renovation project.

This $275,000 project was approved last year for $91,000 in federal funding under the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program under our previous Conservative government.

The renovation will include an expanded children’s area, quiet study space, an accessible family washroom and electrical and lighting upgrades for new technology.

The new renovations will help create a contemporary dynamic design that will emphasize openness and flexibility for the future while preserving the library’s historic charm.

Located on Mill Street in downtown Orangeville, this historic building is an important landmark for the Orangeville community. A recipient of a grant of $12,400 from the Carnegie Foundation in 1904, this key part of our community has been providing exemplary service to the residents of Orangeville for well over a century.
