Sydney’s McConnell Library to get air conditioning this week
The Cape Breton Regional Library says Sydney’s McConnell Branch is finally getting air conditioning.
The library says the McConnell will be closed in the evenings starting Tuesday as workers install the heat pump/air conditioning unit.
The downtown Sydney branch will be open from 9AM to 4PM, and the library says they’ll put out a second public notice when normal hours resume.
The work is expected to take about two weeks.
High heat and humidity in the building led to the McConnell closing early several times during previous summers. In one instance, the library closed at noon when the temperature inside reached 37 degrees.
