What's New...

NEW Sechelt Library at Home
The Better at Home program and the Sechelt Library have joined resources to bring library books, DVDs, CDs, or magazines to people who are homebound.
If you or someone you know is homebound and would like to have library materials delivered to your home, you may register for the Sechelt Library at Home Program. For more information, see the Sechelt Library at Home section of the website.
