CHETWYND, BC – The groundbreaking ceremony for the new Chetwynd Public Library will take place on Friday in commemoration of Yvonne Elden.

The $5.2 million building will include a storytelling space, children’s program room, teen lounge area, creative space and virtual reality room, multi-purpose room, outdoor patio and cafe.

A memorial fund for Yvonne Elden was also started with the Northeast BC Community Foundation, with all proceeds going to the library project.

Elden was “a tireless community leader in Chetwynd who was instrumental in establishing the first library as a member of the Little Prairie Ladies Club.”

The current library is about 50 years old.
