The St. Vital Library is receiving $850,000 from the city and province to upgrade its facility.
Plans include updating the 50-year-old building’s fire and emergency systems, heating and cooling ventilation, and making exterior improvements.
“Libraries play an important role in communities, providing a familiar place to read and conduct research, excellent educational programming, access to technology and other valuable services,” said Municipal Government Minister Drew Caldwell.
“These critical upgrades will make sure the St. Vital Library can be enjoyed for many years to come.”
The city also separately funded a recent installation of an elevator in the library to improve accessibility to all three floors.
