The Royal Oak Public Library’s south entrance will be closed beginning Tuesday, February 22, 2022, for the construction of a canopy on the new library terrace overlooking Centennial Commons. Construction is anticipated to last for 3-4 weeks. Please use the 11 Mile Rd entrance during this time.
The canopy consists of 14 steel ribbons mounted to steel pipe columns. The canopy when completed will be approximately 13-feet tall and will include floodlight fixtures.
Centennial Commons, Royal Oak's new downtown park, opened to the public in December 2021. In addition to the terrace canopy at the library, perennial gardens, a water feature, and a public restroom are currently in the works and should be completed this spring/summer.
