Effective July 15, the New Westminster Courthouse Library is completely closed until December for renovation.
Further information about the closure is given in a news release from Courthouse Libraries BC:
As a result of extensive renovations that are occuring in the Courthouse building, the New Westminster Courthouse Library will be completely closed to members of the legal profession and the public, as of Thursday, July 15, 2010.
Members of the legal profession can access computers in the office located within the Barrister’s Lounge (computers will be available by the end of the business day on Friday, July 16, 2010). These computers provide access to the Library’s online subscription databases (LawSource, QP Legaleze, CLE Online, Hein Online, Legal Trac, DART: Western Decisions, LLMC Digital), plus Internet and word processing. The library photocopier will be there, as well as the copy/print card vending machine and the bookdrop. Please return books to the bookdrop or to the Vancouver Courthouse Library.
The library will reopen in a smaller, renovated space towards the end of the year; we will post the exact date on our website when it is known.
