Cassy and I were eager to do an assessment on Invermere's new Community Hall and library, as we knew it would have features that would appealing to people with mobility challenges. The new space can be found just as you drive in to town, right by the traffic lights. This year, both the library and the Community Hall moved to a bigger building, which gives people more space to move around. This space seems to attract many people, young children coming to participate in story time, and older people checking out books, or to use the computer. This new big, bright space has large windows letting the sunlight in. Downstairs, the Community Hall is a great, large space where our valley can come together to celebrate different events. Council has worked hard to make sure people can access the facility with ease. The staff are always very friendly, and helpful, always asking what they can do to help me. When you come to town, make sure you come to the Community Hall/ library.
