The article presents information on Hazelton District Public Library located in north-central British Columbia, which is an integral part of the local cultural fabric. The library, constructed in 1990 beside a replica riverboat and interpretive park, was designed to reflect proportions of warehouses that lined the riverfront in the latter part of the 19th century. The building has chunky and utilitarian lines. The building has a red metal roof with a central two-windowed dormer. Wide wooden steps and an access ramp lead to double front doors.
