Nellie McClung Branch, 3950 Cedar Hill Rd, Victoria BC V8P 3Z9
Meeting place, living room, technology hub, nerve centre. Nellie McClung Branch is go, go, go from open to close.
Named for suffragette and author Nellie McClung, who lived in nearby Gordon Head, the branch is located near the busy intersection of McKenzie and Shelbourne. Nellie McClung is the “it” branch for several nearby schools, including the University of Victoria, and seniors’ centres.
Its location by two major arteries makes it a convenient meeting place for students studying with tutors, adults commuting to and from work, and neighbourhood folk looking to relax with the newspaper, connect with others and see what’s new at the library.
With one of the largest computer labs in the GVPL system, Nellie McClung is a great space to learn to navigate a new device, do online research into your ancestry or get help with a digital resource.
Several times a year, Nellie McClung attracts hundreds of people as the proud host of book sales presented by the Friends of the Library. It’s a great time to visit our branch and see what keeps us hopping at Nellie McClung.
