New OHM Library almost ready!

If everything goes as planned (and it has so far), we’ll be seeing another Cariboo Library going from drab to fab! April is the target date for the new OHM Library to open its doors. If the inside is anything like the outside, prepare to be dazzled. The citizens of OHM have been waiting a long time for this and it is going to be a wonderful addition to the community.
