A suspicious fire has destroyed a much-loved community library in Nanaimo, at the corner of Pine Street and Campbell Street.

Carolynne Sacht says it was torched on Wednesday night around 9:00pm.

Sacht says says it’s very disappointing because the library has been a popular spot ever since it was installed, and all of the books were ruined by the fire.

She also worried about other little libraries in the neighbourhood being targeted.

If you have any information that could help police with their investigation, please call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
