READING – Downtown Kamloops library closes Monday to start renovations

As previously announced, the downtown Kamloops Library closes for renovations on Monday, Feb. 26.

The last day of service to the public will be Sunday, Feb. 25. Renos are expected to take about six weeks.

While the library is closed, patrons are encouraged to keep their library materials at home — extended loan periods will be allowed.

In the meantime, they can use the North Kamloops Library, which will be open Sundays, noon to 4 p.m., during the temporary closure of the downtown library.

Renovations will include an addition to the downtown building, and electrical, millwork, flooring, drywall, plumbing and painting.

The redesigned space will include patron self-service, interior “zoning” for noise-related activities, and a new visual identity.
