Williams Lake, B.C. – On Saturday, Dec. 16, Cariboo Regional District Directors celebrated the grand opening of the new McLeese Lake Branch of the Cariboo Regional District Library. Following an official ribbon-cutting ceremony, attendees toured the new facility.
The new library offers more space and functionality to meet the needs of library users. There is now space for a second computer station as well as reading and study areas. The new building also has air conditioning.
Business hours remain the same as before – Tuesdays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
In Interlakes, the new library building has been installed and services are being connected. Due to delays and the holiday season, the library will not be able to open before the end of December as anticipated. Once all the services are connected, it will take some time to move the library resources in and set up the space. The timeline for opening will be clarified in January.
Both new libraries are modular buildings manufactured by Horizon North out of Kamloops. They were purchased with a view to shorten construction time and increase the ease of installation. Going forward, these buildings will be a standard design for all stand-alone rural libraries within the CRD. The design offers the space and functionality required to meet the needs of library users, with computer stations as well as reading and study areas.
The Cariboo Regional District Library is an integrated public library system that currently provides library services to residents of the regional district through fifteen branch libraries.
