Work on the Killam Library’s atrium began on June 25. Since then, the atrium has been closed to allow for the major work to take place. Though plans were for the atrium to reopen on July 16, the closure has now been extended for approximately two weeks.
Once the atrium reopens, work will continue throughout the summer. The job is scheduled to be completely finished just before school starts. My 3 Cousins food services will remain open in the trailer located across from the Killam during the atrium closure.
