Overhang increases safety at Terrace, B.C. library

Windows along the west and north sides of the library are being fixed too.

The Terrace Public Library is getting some improvements to improve safety for its staff and the public.

The roof overhang that extends from the front entrance to the first step and to the east along the building has now been extended to the west to keep snow off the cement and make it easier for city crews to shovel the snow.

The overhang is nearly finished, said head librarian David Tremblay.

Roofers worked on tarring for about a week or so and city crews worked on the overhang on and off for about a month and just have to finish it up, he added.

Lights will also be added for more security.

Windows along the west and north sides of the library are being fixed too.

A covered walkway over the rest of the stairs is being considered.

City corporate administrator Alisa Thompson said that $45,000 was in the 2016 budget for the work on the library’s south overhang and windows.

She added that the overhang down the stairs is a proposed project and has not received approval.

If it is approved, it will cost $25,000.
