Green Building
Lois Hole Library has been built to LEED® Standards and is awaiting the final LEED® Certification designation. It was named after the former Lieutenant Governor Lois Hole and reflects her extraordinary support of increased literacy in our community and love of the natural environment.

Computers:
20 internet and word processing stations distributed throughout the branch. There are an additional 5 internet and word processing stations in the children's area along with 4 dedicated early language development PCs.

Staff offer basic one-on-one instruction about eReaders, computers, email and the Internet. For those needing adaptive technology, a Big Keys keyboard is available for public use.

Study and Collaborative Workspace:
The branch features several reading areas and two enclosed study rooms (available on a first-come-first-served basis). One study room has a white board. Most tables and seating can be moved and configured to suit individual or group work.

If you require quiet space please be advised that the branch is the busiest and noisiest on weekends and Thursday afternoons. If the program room is not in use staff would be happy to open it up for those seeking quiet areas to work.

Special Features:
Four Self-Serve Check-out Stations available in 13 different languages.

Plenty of natural light, high ceilings, and warm colors make this a warm and inviting branch.

A colourful and whimsical children's area comprised of child-sized furniture, shelving and computers and an outdoor reading garden designed in the shape of a flower. Other special features of this area are the 6 foot long aquarium, the train, tree and elephant shelving.

There is a quiet reading area with a fireplace at the back of the library.

We offer library tours and library staff is pleased to visit schools, speak at community events or provide information and materials for community groups.
