Visuals of Vernon Library released

The Vernon Library recently revealed its plans for their new library, designed by CEI Architecture, along with new interior renderings.

CEI’s signature design charrette in October 2010 created a building design that addresses the needs and desires of library stakeholders, including the Okanagan Regional Library team, library users, a variety of community groups and representatives from the City of Vernon.

The Vernon Library will be a landmark building—a source of civic pride that reflects Vernon’s unique community character. Local materials will be used as much as possible to create a warm and welcoming space in the new Vernon branch.
