Area L library moving to new location

Diana Forster’s regular correspondence for the Interlakes area

The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) confirms that the Area L library, which was inside the Bridge Lake School building, is relocating to Interlakes Corner, where they have purchased land.

Construction of the foundation has begun, and installation of the building will follow.

They state: “The new libraries are modular buildings manufactured by Horizon North out of Kamloops.

They were purchased with a view to shortening construction time and increasing the ease of installation.

Going forward, these buildings will be a standard design for all stand-alone rural libraries within the CRD.

The design offers the space and functionality required to meet the needs of library users, with computer stations as well as reading and study areas.”

Congratulations

Very special but belated birthday wishes go to Al McAninch for his 95th birthday, Sept. 12—at which time he was living it up on a cruise!

Happy birthday also to Alyce Matthews.
