Westbank First Nation and the Okanagan Regional Library partner for pilot project

Westbank First Nation (WFN) residents were paying $75 annually to access public library services. The WFN and Okanagan Regional Library (ORL) have entered into a 3-year pilot project partnership to offer these services to band members (approximately 7,000 individuals). The cost to the WFN will be 20K, 30K and 40K for years 1-3 respectively.
