Kamloops, BC - July 13, 2020 - The Thompson-Nicola Regional Library is pleased to announce changes to the hours of operation at the Clearwater Library. At the end of July, the library will transition to reopening to the public with evening hours extended on Tuesdays and Fridays, and Saturday hours starting at noon.

Please see Clearwater Library’s new hours below. Changes are highlighted in bold text.

  • Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday: 10:00 am to 7:00 pm
  • Wednesday: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
  • Thursday: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
  • Friday: 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm
  • Saturday: 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm
  • Sunday: Closed

Based a 2019 patron survey, library use patterns, and scheduled local events, these changes are being made to include weekday evenings. “We want to better serve residents who work daytime hours and improve support to local teens attending Friday evening programs,” says Chief Librarian Judy Moore. “We are excited to offer two evenings per week. The added flexibility will provide the Clearwater community with improved access to the library and all of its resources. We know the Clearwater Library is a busy hub in the North Thompson.”

Kaylea Prime, Branch Head of the Clearwater Library, and her team are excited to welcome patrons back as the Library reopens later this month with some service limitations due to COVID-19 safeguards. Library Takeout will remain an option for patrons who are immune-compromised or who enjoy the convenience of this new service.
