TNRD – Downtown library to close for renos a little sooner than planned

The Kamloops downtown library will close for renovations on Monday, Feb. 26 instead of March 1.

The last day of service to the public will be Sunday, Feb. 25. Renovations to the building are expected to take about six weeks while electrical, millwork, flooring, drywall, plumbing and painting are carried out.

“This will result in a more modern library that will create a functional space plan and patron self-service, interior ‘zoning’ for noise-related activities, and visual identity,” TNRD chief librarian Judy Moore said in a media release.

She said patrons are encouraged to keep their library materials at home during the closure, and that extended loan periods will be provided.
