Plans are moving ahead for preliminary design work on a new library for downtown Sydney, Nova Scotia, reports CBC News.
It would replace the current McConnell Memorial library, which was built in 1960. With about 500 visitors per day, it has outgrown its location. Neeta Kumar-Britten, a member of the build committee, says it’s important to find out exactly what’s needed in a new facility before launching a major fundraiser.
According to Kumar-Britten, the committee is hoping the consultant’s report will be finished by spring. The committee is hoping to start construction in the next two years.
