Sechelt library needs extra funding to continue adult programs
The Sechelt Library needs more funding if they want to continue with their adult programs.
More than 2600 people used the program last year but the library is running low of funds and has had to put the program on hold.
Chief Librarian Elle Arichbald says not having these programs available will have an impact, especially on the older generation.
“These programs really help keep our community cognitively active,” said Archibald.
“The impact of these programs disappearing are multifaceted. Right now we’re kind of in limbo because we are waiting to hear what type of funding will be available to us.”
The library will have their budget reviewed by the Sunshine Coast Regional District next month during the RD’s budget process.
Archibald says if their budget is accepted then they’ll have the funds to restart their adult programs again.
