Radium Hot Springs Public Library Endowment Fund

The Radium Hot Springs Public Library has established an endowment fund with the Columbia Valley Community Foundation (https://valleyfoundation.ca) to sustain its long-term development. As the fund grows through donations and bequests from permanent and part-time residents and patrons, the annual interest payments from the fund will enable the library to expand the services and programs it offers to its Valley-wide patrons. All donations over $20 will receive a taxable receipt. For more information and to donate, visit http://valleyfoundation.ca/donate-now/.

History

The Radium Hot Springs Library was first established on February 15, 1994 and was located in the former Radium Elementary School. The Library consisted of just one wall of books donated by local residents. The library quickly outgrew its space and relocated to the Radium Seniors’ Hall in 1995, where it was housed in a small corner room upstairs and a small room in the basement, and operated for limited hours by a few volunteers. In 2006, it became British Columbia’s newest Public Library. Two years later, the Library moved to a bigger space in the Radium Plaza, where it spent 10 years serving the community. In 2018, the Library was moved into its beautiful, spacious and high-tech home in the new Radium Hot Springs Centre
