Haliburton County’s Wilberforce library branch has received an award from the Ontario Library Association.

Executive Director of OLA Shelagh Paterson says the award is for being a well-designed place for play, energy, serenity and excitement.

Paterson says the branch meets the demand for multi-functional library buildings which meets the needs of the community.
