About a dozen McLeese Lake residents' came out on a nippy Saturday, December 16th morning to celebrate the official opening of the Cariboo Regional District's (CRD) new McLeese Lake Community Library.
The new McLeese Lake Library was a project some 7 years in the making. After hearing from CRD Electoral Area 'D' Director Steve Forseth and the Chair of the Cariboo Regional District, Margo Wagner - the ribbon was cut and the library was declared officially open to the community
Many local McLeese Lake residents' stated that they were thrilled with the new facility and would definitely be an asset to the community of McLeese Lake.
Many thanks to Horizon North out of Kamloops for the building and to local McLeese Lake contractor Bob Kelly for getting the site ready to install the new library. Additional landscaping works at the McLeese Lake Library Site are planned for the Spring of 2018 and has already been budgeted for, from the CRD Library Function which is a regionally provided service
The CRD will be also installing the same library facility type in the Interlakes area, within Electoral Area 'L'. That particular library is currently expected to be completed in early 2018
