The Bristol Library will be experiencing some significant overhauls in the near future, allowing for expanded service hours and more resources once it’s been moved to the new location.
Nearly $95,000 in funding has been announced for the library, with equal parts invested by the federal, provincial and municipal levels of government, at a press conference on Saturday afternoon.
“The Government of Canada kows that investing in cultural infrastructure promotes community development and economic growth,” said Pontiac MP Will Amos, in a press release. “By providing a larger renovated space, the Bristol library will be able to improve its services for residents and more fully meet its educational and social mandates.”
