Library Renovations

We are renovating. Please watch this space for updates.

Step 2 of Renovations at the Kelowna Library starts on Monday October 31

“Connection to Innovation”

With the Okanagan Innovation Centre nearing completion, the connection of this new building to the Kelowna Library building on the first and second floors is about to begin. The noisiest work will be done before opening each day, but work will continue throughout the day to ensure a quick completion of this phase of the project. Expect to hear some knocking, banging, and other demolition related noises as the construction crew chips through our outer wall to create the opening for the connecting hallways to be built. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

There are six book drop bins located on the west side of the building. They are locked only during extended library closures (Easter and Christmas).

Parkade & Library Access During Construction

The entrance to the parkade has now been modified. The original entrance is blocked off and what used to be two exit lanes are now one entrance and one exit. Please be careful and watch for the signage.

Vehicle access to the library and parkade is now off Ellis on a temporary driveway. The entire driveway is one way entering from Ellis and exiting onto Doyle. Please be very careful walking around the library during this period, as the only sidewalk will be the one right against the curved wall of the building.



Parking is available in the Library Plaza Parkade for $1 per hour on weekdays with free parking on weekends and evenings after 6:00 p.m. More downtown parking information is available here. Before you come down in the evening; check for event parking dates based on the Rockets' schedule. Event night parking is $5.00 and a sign will be posted at the parkade entrance.
