Library work planned

IT’S going to be easier for people with mobility issues to use all portions of the Terrace Public Library.

“An elevator will remove the existing accessibility barrier and provide a welcoming environment that is inclusive of all people,” said head librarian Margo Schiller of an upcoming project at the building.

It means it will be easier for everyone to gain access to the art gallery located on the lower level.

At present there’s only a curving staircase leading downstairs.

An improved washroom on the upper level of the building will also be added.

Money for the work comes from the city and a federal grant.

“The accessibility project will enhance the quality of life for residents of the community by providing them with the opportunity to fully engage in library and art gallery programs and services,” said Schiller.
