Library Art Gallery

About the Project

Both the main branch of the Greater Sudbury Public Library (GSPL) and the Art Gallery of Sudbury (AGS) are very much focused on community service and both have long outgrown their current locations.  Separately, the GSPL and AGS have explored options to seek new downtown locations.  As a result of preliminary analysis, a number of synergies were identified and City Council subsequently provided direction to formally investigate the feasibility of a joint facility. 

This co-location has been identified as a way to reduce capital and operating costs relative to separate facilities and thereby increasing the likelihood of implementation of needed new facilities.
