About Sardis Library
The Sardis Library is opened it's doors on May 6 to the community after several years of planning and much anticipation. In an ongoing effort to reduce costs, the Sardis Library has been built with a number of environmental considerations and sustainable design principles to reduce annual operating costs and conserve both current and future resources. This 10,600 square foot facility includes a number of amenities that will appeal to all age groups.
Multi-purpose community space available for after hours bookings. Let the outside in - summertime fun can now enter the space when the large bay doors are opened to accommodate larger groups for special activities.
Fireside area that will provide visitors with a relaxing environment to enjoy their favourite book. Children and youth haven’t been left out and have their own special areas as well.
- ‘Self Check In System’ - bring the children and check out the new automated system that visibly demonstrates
book sorting within the library; a service that reduces operating costs.
A key component of the services the library provides are community programs. In 2012, the Chilliwack Library offered 566 programs for youth and adults. With the increased capacity at the Sardis Library through the use of the multi-purpose community space, residents will continue to enjoy many of the same programs and services appreciated at the Chilliwack location.
