There's no firm date yet announced for when the Prince Rupert Library may once again open its doors to the public, but when it does there may be a bit of a new look to the familiar building on Sixth Avenue West.
Northern Savings has provided for 15,000 dollars to support a refresh for the Library which will include a new paint job for the exterior of the building.
The money was put aside for the Library's new paint and other enhancements last year as part of Northern Savings commitment to community.
Chief Librarian Joe Zelwietro is looking forward to the new look that will make for the refresh:
“We are fortunate in Prince Rupert to have individuals and institutions who recognize that a Public Library is a basic requirement for a community to learn, grow and understand each other. The Library already a vibrant, invigorating learning place will now have a new fresh, vivid look that reflects the spirits of its patrons. Thank you Northern Savings Credit Union for seeing that spirit and supporting the Library in its work.”
The plans were announced last week with prep work already underway.
