exterior of UBC Library at the Okanagan campus

The $1.4-million renovation to UBC’s Okanagan campus library is complete. With more seating, additional group study rooms and added quiet reading space, the Library is a nexus of rich content, state-of-the-art technology and inspiring space.

Staff are eager to show off the revitalized space to the campus community and Okanagan residents. For more on the renovation, please visit the media release, which was reprinted in the Vernon Morning Star.

You can also read more coverage the Phoenix, the student newspaper at UBC’s Okanagan campus. The article, entitled “Campus library completes summer renovation,” appears on page 11.
