Libraries to get upgrades

The Bob Prittie Metrotown library will see an injection of cash after Burnaby council approved $104,000 for new furnishings and shelving.

It also okayed $314,000 for a new system to secure and circulate library materials at the Metrotown and McGill branches. The radio frequency identification system is already in use at the Tommy Douglas and Cameron branches, and allows for self-checkout of items and barrier-free entrances.
