Work is underway on the construction of a new Sooke library on Waddams Way, library officials announced today.
The survey, geotechnical, and environmental work have all been completed, which means consultants can finalize the site plan, said David Carson, a spokesman for the Vancouver Island Regional Library in a press release.
VIRL’s architect is currently working on the design for the new library building. A second public meeting will be held once the design has been set and is ready for public viewing.
“Our goal remains to have shovels in the ground this spring and for the new library to open approximately a year later, Carson said.
In the meantime, the lease is in place at the current branch until December 2019 to ensure that residents of Sooke do not go without library services.
