Mayor Andy Adams and Campbell River council have voted to continue with project planning on the existing library site. “This is the right location and the right time for a new library for the people of Campbell River,” says Campbell River Mayor, Andy Adams.

Campbell River city council has confirmed support for a new two-storey library at the site of the current Campbell River library. The current building, shown in this photograph, will be demolished and the new building built on the same site.

The proposed budget of $14 million includes the cost of construction, furnishings, technology infrastructure, and site preparation. Costs are being finalized on preliminary design concepts, and are expected to be higher than originally forecast due to rising lumber and construction costs during the pandemic.

The City of Campbell River has committed to providing a no-cost lease to the Vancouver Island Regional Library, demolishing the existing facility, and to servicing the site with sewage, water, drainage and CR Municipal Broadband service.
