The KDGS and the Okanagan Regional Library System will be partnering in a 2-year Pilot Project wherein the KDGS Library will be located on the 2nd Floor of the Downtown Kelowna Library!  Thank you to all involved for your perseverance through the negotiations and a BIG Thank You to Lesley Dieno and her staff.  Thank you also to Gwen & Maurice Neil for storing our Library over the past several months.

Move date is tentatively Oct. 17, 2011 and we expect to be operational by Oct. 24th.  Please visit us often in our new location which is available to library patrons during the Downtown Library’s opening hours.

The Library is up and running.  See the video on our new digs.  CLICK HERE!
