The new Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL) has received support from Campbell River City Council to see a two-storey, 20,000 square foot facility on the site of the current branch at 1240 Shoppers Row.

The project is in partnership between the City and the Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL) Board. The City's role in this project is to prepare the site for construction which includes the demolition of the current building, installation of site servicing (civil works including water, storm and sewer), modifications to the Tidemark Theatre, and providing high-speed internet service through CR Advantage.

September 27, 2021 - New Campbell River library on hold for at least 12 months
