Victoria Needs a Hillside Library
Residents of Hillside-Quadra, Oaklands and North Park deserve local access to library materials, services, classes, events, and community space.
"A public library is the most democratic thing in the world. What can be found there has undone dictators and tyrants." -Doris Lessing
Join us in petitioning Victoria City Council
The Greater Victoria Public Library (GVPL) Facilities Report
"Making Space for the Future" (2010)
recognized the need for a new "Hillside neighbourhood" library branch.
The location was to be determined by the city in consultation with GVPL (see criteria here).
However, funds have not been set aside in the 2019 city budget
to begin the planning process for access to local library services in these key neighbourhoods.
Sign our petition to let City Council know that a Hillside neighbourhood library is a top priority.
