Special thanks goes to our Grand Opening Celebration sponsors: Aquicon Construction Co. Ltd., Colliers Project Leaders, Umanii, Seara Bakery, Toetera Fine Foods, Monte Carlo Inns and COBS Bread. Music throughout the day generously provided by The Replacements.
Beautifully carved trees have been placed in the Children’s area of the library.
Phrases such as “Read” and “Row, row, row your boat” can be found imprinted on the trunks. You and your children can delight in the artistry while choosing which books to take home with you.
If you are a fan of the hot summer weather, grab a book, smell the flowers, and relax outside on our second-story patio. There is a chair with your name on it!
While you’re here, check out the rest of the library!
This week has been a great week at the Civic Centre Resource Library as workers continue to construct the frames of the building. Take a look at the site from different views and imagine how stunning the library will look once construction finishes.
