Subject

Welland Public Library front entrance work

Description

Two colour slides showing the work being done to convert the old front entrance to a window during the Welland Public Library building extension construction, September 29, 1975.

The front entrance was led up to by a stone staircase outside, so the front entrance was changed for accessibility reasons.

The slides are part of a photographic record of 600 images to document the construction work undertaken to expand the Carnegie building in 1974 and 1975. The library had become too small to house a growing collection and to serve the growing population of Welland.
