On April 30, 2016, an assent vote was held for the proposed Robson Valley Exploration and Learning Service. The board report with the official results can be found here: https://rdffg.civicweb.net/FileStorage/AF87C7DF36534096986B028DEDBF1FBB-okeRVELS%20results.pdf.
The assent vote generated sufficient support to proceed in the purchasing of 521 Main Street in McBride for a new home for the McBride & District Public Library and the Valley Museum and Archives. Construction and renovations have been occurring at the site to ensure it is ready and safe for occupancy. It is anticipated that the building will be open in the Spring of 2018.
