Come Explore! Library Celebration

716 Sixth Avenue

The library has been under renovation for some time and we are finally open again! Join us for hands-on activities, entertainment, refreshments, and fun!

Come on a renovation tour to see what's new, try out some of our new technology, write a love letter to the library, get silly in the photo booth, listen to great jazz from an NWSS Jazz Quintet, and just explore!

Mayor Cote and other dignitaries will make remarks at 2:00 pm and cake and refreshments will be available after that.

Beginning in October 2017, the library undertook several infrastructure improvements throughout the interior and exterior of the library including upgrades to ceilings, HVAC ducting, lighting, windows and electrical systems. Interior enhancements include refurbished public washrooms, the addition of a study room, creation of a dedicated teen space, as well as construction of a new Technology Learning Centre on the 2nd floor. All program rooms now feature upgraded digital media technology enhancing programing and meeting space for the community. The addition of wooden ends to library shelving, as well as adjustments to collections have resulted in a lighter and brighter interior all centering around a newly consolidated public service desk using state of the art technology.

No registration or fee is required for any of the activities scheduled for that afternoon.
