The Bob Harkins (Main) Branch of the Prince George Public Library will be closed from Monday, October 28 to Friday, November 1 as part of the project to construct a new Library entrance and circulation area. Significant demolition work is scheduled for that time period, which will negatively affect the ability of Library staff to provide service to the public.
Items that are due for return from October 28 to November 1 can be inserted in the book drop located in the ground level parking area. Alternatively, materials can be returned without financial penalty when the library re-opens on November 2. In addition, due dates will be extended by one week for all items due back to the Bob Harkins Branch during the closed period.
The Library has prepared a Q&A with information about accessing various Library services – such as renewals, book club pick-ups, and program registration – during the closure. This document is available from the Library website at www.pgpl.ca/renovations.
Note that the Nechako Branch in the Hart will be open that week except for Wednesday, October 30.
The $4.36 million Library renovation project will provide a new, multi-story entrance providing improved access to Canada Games Plaza and the Library parking area, while also enhancing the reception/circulation area. The expansion is expected to open in early 2020 and is being built by Datoff Bros. Construction of Prince George. The Library was built in 1981.
