Library open house

As part of its 75th anniversary celebrations, the Parksville and Qualicum Beach branches of the Vancouver Island Regional Library will be hosting a customer appreciation day this week.

The event, slated to be held on two separate days at the two facilities, will kick off on September 28 and 29.

“We wish to invite our customers to come and share their early library memories with us as we recognize our 75th year of providing library services,” said Jamie Anderson, Library Manager for Parksville at Vancouver Island Regional Library.

The Parksville event starts at 2 p.m. on Sept. 28, while the Qualicum Beach event starts at 10 a.m. on the following day.

“Our regional library system was started under challenging circumstances during the Depression era, and many Vancouver Island citizens deserve our recognition and thanks for their pioneering efforts and perseverance,” said Janet Delgatty, library manager for Qualicum Beach.

The Vancouver Island Regional Library  system is the fourth largest library system in British Columbia and has 38 branch locations on Vancouver Island (except Victoria), and also has branches on Haida Gwaii and in Bella Coola on the B.C. central coast.

The Parksville library branch is located at 100 Jensen Ave. East, while the Qualicum Beach branch is located at 660 Primrose Street, in the bottom of town hall.
