Our Modernist Central Library was built in 1962 after winning a city-wide plebiscite vote to spend $925,000 for a new library. Sixty years later, with neither discussion paper nor public discussion nor mention of its Heritage status, the RPL Library Board has “considered what’s best for customers and the community”, and has voted to demolish Central Library.
