The city will likely build a new central library to Lebreton Flats, despite downtown residents complaining the new location sits outside the city core, said one member of the library board.

At least 200 people took to City Hall council chambers Wednesday night, and a show of hands had none supporting the city’s current plan.

Coun. David Chernushenko said roughly a dozen constituents told him they don’t like the proposed location, mostly Glebe residents who visit the main branch from their downtown workplaces.
