New Regent Place Branch Opens at Regina Public Library

Within a decade, RPL has gone from plans to close three branches plus two specialized units to opening two new branches within the last year and plans to hopefully build a new Central Library eventually.

The latest branch opening was the new Regent Place location which happens to be the one closest to my home and my home branch before I began working at RPL’s current Central Library.

I stopped by yesterday on my way home to have a look at the new digs and was pretty impressed (and although I had no formal role in the move or at the opening, even ended up helping a patron with a computer question!)

At the same time, it’s unfortunate, given our recent extended contract negotiation and various other happenings at RPL in the last few years that there’s not more of a sense of excitement among staff for these achievements – a real lost opportunity if you ask me.
