June 24, 2023 will be the last day of service at Caledon Public Library’s (CPL) current Caledon East branch located in the Robert F. Hall Secondary School. The new location will be in the expanded Caledon East Community Complex at 6215 Old Church Road, Caledon East L7C 1J7.
“We are grateful for the long-lasting partnership with the Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board”, states Colleen Lipp, Caledon Public Library’s CEO & Chief Librarian. “The shared branch in R.F.Hall was instrumental to CPL’s early efforts to serve the Caledon East community. We expect that this new branch will be a destination for students of all ages outside of school hours.”
The relocated Caledon East Branch, will offer more space and full-service hours, all within easy access to recreation amenities including a gym, walking track, pool and twin ice-pads. The new branch will also be home to the Cory Trépanier Creativity Studio. This space will provide the community with access to emerging technologies and maker tools including 3D printers, a laser cutter, a green screen, and tools to empower and encourage creativity.
The drop box at the current location will be available until July 2nd and the drop box at the new location will open on July 3rd. Holds pick-up will be temporarily unavailable at both locations, however it will resume at the new location well in advance of the facility opening on September 5th.
“We are excited to be able to offer our customers a brand-new branch in Caledon East later in 2023”, states Lipp. “During the transition, we encourage customers to visit our six other branches including the Margaret Dunn Valleywood Collaboration Studio that has been reimagined into a space offering new and innovative services and technologies including a makerspace and recording studio as well as spaces for working, learning, and meeting.”
