Building a phenomenal new library for Berwick and area

The construction of the new Berwick & Area Library is well under way!

The new space will again be in the Berwick Town Hall complex at 236 Commercial Street, but will be twice as large, 2190 sq. ft. It will have access to more program rooms, a larger section for youth and an inspiring area for children. As well as a quiet reading area for adults.

You will enter the library through the "Community Living Room". A place to gather with your community neighbours, to relax, or to read a book or magazine either online or in hardcover.

Outside the windows will be a landscaped green space with outdoor seating and wifi access under large trees. It will be in close proximity to the sidewalk so you can't miss it.

A dedicated group called the Friends of the Berwick & Area Library has formed to help fund raise the necessary amount to outfit the new space with inspiring furnishings and equipment. If you would like to join this group or receive up to date information please contact the Berwick Library, 902-538-4030, to be added to the email list. If you have any questions or would like to make a donation you may do so here (Canada helps ) or drop in to the Berwick Library temporarily located in Wilson's Pharmasave at 213 Commercial Street, Berwick.
