Air conditioning not functional at McLennan-Redpath Library Complex

The McLennan-Redpath Library Complex air conditioning system is not functional due to a broken pipe. It will take 7-10 days to complete the repair. Depending on the weather outside, the building may get warmer than usual. Library users can also expect some noise caused by drilling, hammering and welding and are encouraged to use other, quieter, cooler branch library spaces to study. For information on opening and service hours, please select a branch library from the list located here.
