Canada Global (Web News) A portion of the $45 million being invested by the provincial government in public libraries across British Columbia will go to the Okanagan.
The province will provide the Okanagan Regional Library about $1.7 million, according to Vernon-Monashee MLA Harwinder Sandhu.
The funds, according to the province and Sandhu, would support library modernization, improve information access for users, and improve programming and services.
Everyone may access information and technology in libraries, regardless of background, age, or wealth, according to Sandhu. “Libraries are an equaliser and such a tremendous resource,” she added.
“Regional libraries have benefited me as a mother of three and as a nurse, and like many individuals in our community, my family and I continue to use local libraries.”
“I am extremely grateful for everyone working at the libraries to give us useful resources,” Sandhu concluded. Our community may anticipate enhanced library services and programmes, new technology and equipment, and more with more money.
The one-time grant will provide $1,678,980.83 to the Okanagan Regional Library.
