Vibrant Library Spaces
In 2016, we welcomed nearly 2.5 million people to our branches. A library is much more than a place to check out a book; it is a community meeting space, a virtual office, a play zone and a destination for lifelong learning. Your donation helps us refresh and renew these busy spaces.
Community-Inspired Programs and Services
Your support helps us expand our programs and services to instill a love of reading in kids, help people navigate the online world, welcome newcomers and support job seekers. There are lifelong learning opportunities for every age and every stage of life at the library. In fact, last year, 89,000 people in Greater Victoria attended more than 3,000 library programs and events.
Did you know that library users borrow more, per capita, in Greater Victoria than in other large Canadian communities? We are a community of passionate readers, dedicated to lifelong learning. In 2016, nearly 5.7 million books, magazines, DVDs and digital collections were used by community members. Your support helps us keep up with the growing demand for these popular materials.
