LETTER: I don’t care what anyone says, Surrey’s new library is worth every penny

If you’re still not convinced, go and take a look when classes are out at around 3 p.m. and onward. The place is buzzing.

Re: “Library a big waste,” the Now, June 30.

I just finished reading a letter written by someone who claims the Surrey Centre library is a waste of space and money.

When it was first built, I heard the exact same complaint from my mother. I love my mother but she is in her 50s and hasn’t kept up with technology.

I see the library’s vision and it is clearly a meeting place for the entire community to study, mentor and research. I have attended literacy tutor training classes with PICS in the meeting rooms and met Little Sister Study Buddies there as a Big Sisters tutor for almost three years now.

The space is geared toward attracting students with their laptops and textbooks and I think it’s a great take on the traditional library.

I love what they’ve done at Surrey City Centre.

If you’re still not convinced, go and take a look when classes are out at around 3 p.m. and onward. The place is buzzing.
