Port Hope Public Library .                Renovation & Addition . 2001

The Port Hope Library was a Carnegie Library built in 1912.  In the 70’s and 80’s, additions were added that destroyed the original Carnegie façade.  The project was to restore the original Carnegie and renovate it, and its additions, and to add a large addition.  The library now overlooks the Ganaraska River in downtown Port Hope, one of the few buildings in the Town to do so.  Its construction created a Riverfront Walkway, which has been extended thanks to the Rotary Club who also improved the park to the south, which the Library overlooks.
