The Southwest Community Library has been discussed by the Library Board and Kitchener City Council for many years. The Library Board first identified the need for a new library in the Southwest in 2000, and moved to endorse a site in the future Rosenberg community in 2011.
Core infrastructure work has commenced to support the development of the Rosenberg community. The library will be one of the first constructions in the area.
The Southwest Community Library is proposed to be a 15 000 square foot building in Rosenberg, to the southwest of the intersection of Bleams Road and Fischer Hallman Road. In October 2020, the Kitchener Public Library Board approved a Business Case with an estimated costing of $10.1M for the project.
The projected site is at the northwest corner of what will be Rosenberg Way and Abram Clemens Street. Design work is slated to take place in 2021, construction in 2022, with a potential opening timeline of 2023.
