Last night, we went to the launch party for Skylab. This is a new portion of the Bob Harkins (downtown) branch of the Prince George Public Library. Essentially, they took the top floor which has a huge amount of ceiling space and added as an extra level to a portion of it. This allows them to increase their floor space without actually expanding.
Beyond that, the space is focused on the technical end of libraries– computers, etc. There’s also some very nice chairs and some very nice views. I think I might actually take advantage of it as an extra working space once in a while.
Here are some pictures from the event:
There was a space theme, starting with the invitation. Then you get to the main lobby and are greeted by this:
The theme continued at the meet-and-greet. Music from “Star Wars”, “2001: A Space Odyssey”, and David Bowie played in the background while volunteers handed out glowsticks. Then, we all went up stairs for the main event:
Here’s some shots I took of the area. This is underneath the new portion:
And here’s the Skylab itself:
