The McLeese Lake branch of the Cariboo Regional District Library is officially open.

McLeese Lake library now officially open

The new library is stocked with books and now open to the public

Lovers of books in the McLeese Lake area are certain to be happy with the news that the new McLeese Lake library is open for business.

The new facility is located directly behind the old library although it is a significant improvement on its predecessor. There is more space for reading and studying as well as two new computer stations and air conditioning for the hot summer months.

“It is wonderful to see the new library open and available to the public,” said director of CRD Electoral Area D, Steve Forseth. “We plan to have a grand opening in the next few weeks and I encourage the community to come out and see this beautiful new community space.”

McLeese Lake isn’t the only community with a new space however. Another library is being constructed in the Interlakes area and the foundation and building have already been installed. Once the utilities are connected, staff can start filling the library with books to suit all ages and welcome community members shortly after.

The CRD is expecting the Interlakes branch to open before the end of the year.
