Oakville Real Estate – Centennial Square in for a Major Makeover?

Downtown Oakville’s Centennial Square could be in for a major makeover. A group of about 10 residents have been working together over several years to try to get some dialogue going in Oakville about possible upgrades to the location, which currently houses the Oakville Centre for Performing Arts, Central Library branch, an art gallery and other public spaces.

Oakville Public Library available Online

If you can’t visit your local library in person, the Oakville Public Library is suggesting that you visit online.

In recent years, OPL has developed a detailed, user-friendly virtual branch, which offers a variety of services to the community without the concerns of line-ups or hours of operation.
