Books on parade: Volunteers to cart library’s contents to new location

New McBride, B.C. library will serve as community hub

“Thousands of books must be moved from one library to another over the Victoria Day long weekend in McBride, B.C. 

A parade of books lined the streets of McBride, B.C., on Friday as the local library — and all its contents — began the move into a new space this weekend.

Volunteers plan to cart 16,000 books from 241 Dominion Street, the McBride and District Public Library’s home since 1967, to its new location a few blocks away to 521 Main Street.”
