Picton Branch Expansion is Under Way!August 27, 2021
The COVID-19 closure of the library's buildings in spring 2020 has been a reminder of the importance of the physical library. Members of the Prince Edward County community have made it clear that they missed regular library trips to browse the shelves, see friends and neighbours and stay connected, and that online replacements did not meet the need entirely and were not available to all. Although the pandemic has changed the timeline for the Picton Branch Library expansion, fundraising work is ongoing. The new normal of COVID-19 precautions has highlighted limitations the library board had already identified in the Picton Branch Library, including crowded spaces, narrow aisles and inadequate washroom facilities. The expansion project is more critical than ever to ensure the library is safe and welcoming to all.
