FORT YORK LIBRARY WINS ONTARIO LIBRARY ASSOCIATION BUILDING AWARD

Toronto, Canada – August 30, 2016
The 2016 Ontario Library Association (OLA) Library Building Award, which recognizes excellence in architectural design and planning of Ontario libraries, has been awarded to the Toronto Public Library’s Fort York Branch.

“The award recipients, along with their architectural firms, have created wonderful spaces that have become tremendous community assets,” said Shelagh Paterson, Executive Director of OLA. “They have shown that libraries can be well-designed places for play, energy, serenity and excitement.”

The facility, which opened its doors in May 2014, is a tech-savvy community hub that raises the bar with 3D printers, digital innovation spaces, and DJ equipment for communal use. The HIDI Group provided mechanical, electrical, lighting, communications and security design for this 99th location in the Toronto Public Library network, which features energy efficient design and sustainable systems.

Awards are granted specifically to new library buildings and are handed out every three years. Submissions from all types of libraries (academic, school, public and institutional) are eligible for recognition.
