Quadra Island Library Branch closes March 10th with new branch opening on March 20th
Customers of the Quadra Island Library Branch will soon be able to enjoy their new library at Cove Centre, Quathiaski Cove. The current library branch will be closed starting on Sunday, March 11th. The new branch opens in its new location on Tuesday, March 20th.
“Quadra Island customers are encouraged to borrow as much material as they wish before the library closes at the end of the day on Saturday, March 10th,” says Timothy Skye, Library Manager. “Loan periods have been adjusted and fines will not be assessed.”
The new 3207 sq. ft. facility will be slightly more than three times the size of the present 1024 sq. ft. branch with room for more books, CDs, DVDs, newspapers, magazines and six public computers.
When the library re-opens on Tuesday, March 20th, all library materials will remain as a fixed collection for six months. A date for the official grand opening of the new branch will be announced in the next few weeks.
The new facility will provide a welcoming, airy and bright, fully-accessible community space with large windows, and room for an expanded collection.
