The Cloverdale Library will be closing for renovation on July 8 (not April 28 some of you may have heard). The renovation is still expected to take 5-6 months!
Family History department (print, microfilm, databases) and information staff
will be relocating to City Centre Branch for the duration of the closure, so we
will be fully available for you there. Our Fun Family History Friday
programs will continue there at City Centre Branch on the first Friday of each
month. New family history programs will be scheduled and held at various
branches. Our website will have all the updates https://www.surreylibraries.ca/services/family-history.
