Ottawa, BC invest in Kwantlen library expansion

November 20, 2009

The federal and BC governments announced last Thursday over $1.2 million from the Knowledge Infrastructure Program to support the expansion of the library at Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Richmond campus. The renovation and expansion of the library will allow Kwantlen to meet the increased demands that come with being granted university status. Of the existing library space, the university will convert over 3,000 square feet of vacant tech services and archives space, and optimize existing checkout, vestibule, and library support spaces. The project includes space planning that will eventually allow Kwantlen to double the size of the collection available to students and the community. Kwantlen News Release
