Sixty Years and Going Strong at the Prince George Public Library
Prince George, B.C. – The Prince George Public Library is celebrating its 60th year as a civic establishment and invited the community to the downtown Bob Harkins branch on Saturday to mark the occasion.
The bylaw to establish a library in the City of Prince George was given first reading by the council of the day on May 9th, 1955. On June 20th, 1955 Mayor Gordon Bryant signed the document officially incorporating the library as a municipal institution.
The Diamond anniversary was marked in low-key fashion with Chief Librarian Janet Marren and staff on hand in the Keith Gordon room to chat with visitors, cut a celebratory cake and hand out pieces to those dropping in for the event.
