Kingsville council approved plans to make Carnegie Library building accessible for people with disabilities
Americas, September 2 2011
Kingsville council has approved architectural plans to make the Carnegie library building accessible for people with disabilities.
The heritage building with its grand front stairs is no longer used as a library and can’t be used as a public building until it is made accessible.
Architect Joseph Toth presented drawings for a 22 foot by 23 foot addition with an elevator and two accessible washrooms on the south side of the former library.
The town has viewed a number of plans to try to make the Carnegie building accessible and Toth said these plans have the approval of the local heritage committee.
Toth said the plans would add one or two accessible parking spots, a heated slab at the building access so snow and ice won’t gather there, two washrooms and an elevator for the Carnegie building.
