Mount Hope Branch Renovation Project
Update: April 2023
The Hamilton Public Library Board has agreed to take $1 million from its capital projects reserve fund to help pay for the renovation and an updated design of the Mount Hope Branch. The Branch relocated to its current location at the front of the Mount Hope Community Hall at 3027 Homestead Drive. In the proposed feasibility designs, the existing north entry vestibule and exterior ramp will be removed to allow for an increased total space of approximately 2,350 square feet, in comparison to the current 2,230 square feet. This extra space will allow for desirable amenities, including two separate Study areas, a larger Children's Department separate from the Adult and Teen area, more public computers, a centrally located Circulation Desk, a new universal washroom, and more shelving units.
There is an accessible elevator at the rear of the building where the parking lot is located, and there are accessible washrooms. The building, including the addition of the elevator, was renovated in 2017.
