Library funding appreciated

On behalf of the board of trustees of Pemberton and District Library (PDPL) I want to acknowledge the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation for its generous grant of $40,000, which will allow us to implement the first stage of the PDPL main library redesign.

Since moving into the Pemberton and District Community Centre in 2008, the PDPL has experienced a steady increase in patron visits. This is particularly exciting given that the catchment we serve, the Village of Pemberton and the Squamish Lillooet Regional District, has a combined population of just over 6,000.

When we consider the projected growth for our community, creating a flexible, more accommodating space is essential to meeting our goal of being the hub of the community. The fact that the foundation recognized the importance of this project is greatly appreciated.

The board of trustees extends its heartfelt thanks to the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation for providing the initial funding to make our redesign a reality.

With gratitude,
Judith Walton
Chair, Pemberton and District Library Board of Trustees,
