After many months of construction the Vancouver Island Regional Library, Wellington Branch, opened their doors to the public at Country Club Centre on Tuesday. This new space replaces the old Wellington Branch, which was previously located behind Country Club on Barons Rd. The space is roughly around the same size as the old Wellington Branch but offers an upgraded contemporary design with many new features such as lower stacked shelves, brand new computers, lounges, study areas, a children’s section and much more. Although they opened their doors on Tuesday, VIRL will have their grand opening celebrations on Saturday, July 8 where customers will enjoy speeches, local entertainment and tours.
