UCN cuts ribbon on new research library

April 29, 2013

Manitoba-based University College of the North held a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week as it celebrated the opening of its new research library named in honour of the late, long-serving MLA Oscar Lathlin. The 16,400-square-foot research library includes a campus commons area for students, computer workstations, study areas and rooms for private meetings. It serves the 2 main campuses and 12 regional centres across the north. The library is part of a major expansion of the UCN campus at The Pas, supported with a $15-million investment by the province. It was also done with the help of generous donations from members of the community including Evans Premachuk, Opaskwayak Cree Nation and the family of Oscar Lathlin. The expansion includes a new 6,500 square foot child-care facility, an Aboriginal centre and centralized administrative offices. Manitoba News | UCN News Release
