Idea Exchange, Hespeler

During the 100th anniversary of the Hespeler Carnegie Library, explore this “ship-in-a-bottle” renovation that preserved the original building while adding more space to better serve the growing community. Discover modern design elements that acknowledge Hespeler’s industrial past as a booming textile town and hockey stick manufacturer. During Doors Open, staff will describe how the building’s design blends old and new.
