Smithers Library-Gallery Project

Project Update


The Smithers Library-Gallery Project Fundraising Committee has raised over $700,000 of their $1,000,000 goal for community fundraising. The committee is actively accepting donations from the wider community to help build a lasting legacy for Bulkley Valley residents to enjoy for generations to come.

The town has applied for a combined federal and provincial government grant that funds up to 80% of the cost of the new library-gallery project. This application will be determined in late fall of 2019.
