Completed Capital Campaigns

Outreach Vehicle

The library’s outreach vehicle was unveiled in June 2018, after over a year of fundraising by the Library Board. The project was generously supported by Prince George Ford and the Friends of the Prince George Public Library. The outreach vehicle transports collections and programs out into the community, making it easier and more convenient for citizens to access the library.
The Knowledge Garden     
The Knowledge Garden is a reading garden and performance space located between the Bob Harkins Branch and the Prince George Civic Centre, adjacent to Patricia Boulevard. The garden features benches, a picnic site, a Children’s Garden as well as a small amphitheatre. The project broke ground in June 2013.
SkyLab includes a 1,000 square foot mezzanine halfway up to the second-floor ceiling. The space is wired with high-speed Internet connections and laptop users can plug into hard-wired Ethernet jacks. The $260,000 project was funded with money raised by the Library Board and through private donations, as well as a small provincial government grant.
