Kamloops downtown library is open today after a 350 thousand dollar makeover.
TNRD’s Chief Librarian Judy Moore says after a 6 week closure, they’re hoping to see the public make their way back.
“As patrons walk back into the library, what they’ll notice is our member services desk, with staff on board to help them with any questions or service requirements they may have. So that’s really key, change of our staffing model, we’re introducing self check-out, and we are introducing public meeting rooms.”
On top of all those changes, Moore says the library also has a new children’s space.
“For folks who come down to use the Kamloops library downtown here, they will have noticed that you know, at times previously, there would be 70-80 kids in a story time, really loud. So what we’ve tried to achieve is some noise reduction, and really distinct zoning on those two floors.”
She adds, construction had zero problems throughout, so they were able to finish up a few days early.
