Construction of an ultra-modern Sooke branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL) will begin next year, according to a statement released by the organization.
 
The two-storey west coast-themed facility is slated for the 6600-block of Wadams Way in Sooke’s town centre across from the Sooke Family Resource Centre.
 
Conceptualized as a roughly 15,000 square foot circular structure with over 2,600 square feet of young adult and adult-oriented materials and a nearly 2,100 square foot children’s area complete with a small theatre, the new library will vastly improve upon Sooke’s Anna Marie Road branch that has outgrown its single-storey space.
 
Although the project has been delayed by over a year, VIRL says it has applied to Sooke for a development permit and will apply by year’s-end for a building permit. The project will go before a construction tendering process in January of next year with a construction contract expected to be awarded in February.
 
Construction will commence in 2019 with completion slated for 2020.
 
VIRL operates two Capital Region branches situated in Sooke and Sidney, and 38 branches throughout Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii and the Sunshine Coast. C
