The new 180 square metre facility will:

  • include space for the Opawa Volunteer Library Group, the Opawa Children's Library Group and a community meeting room
  • be energy-efficient and well insulated

Heritage items salvaged from the old library will be incorporated into the new Opawa Library.

It is expected to open in late summer 2020.
