The UBC Okanagan Innovation Library, which opened earlier this month, is a partnership between Okanagan Regional Library (ORL) and UBC Okanagan Library. An official reception was held October 15 to formally recognize the space. The new branch is located within the ORL’s Downtown Kelowna branch, and provides library services and resources to UBC faculty, staff, students and alumni, as well as community members.
 
Deborah Buszard, UBC Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the Okanagan campus, Stephanie Hall, ORL executive director, as well as Heather Berringer, Chief Librarian, were on hand to welcome guests and provide remarks on the impact of the space to users. “The Innovation Library is the product of a partnership that is unique in Canada and offers a new model for university libraries of the 21st century,” said Buszard.
 
The event was featured on Global Okanagan, “News at 5, Top Stories” (begins at the 11:48 minute mark).
