Please note that the library now opens Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. With increased traffic, a new interlibrary loan service, and the popularity of new programs, staff struggle to keep up with the workload. The reduction in hours doesn’t mean a reduction in staff hours. For more information, please click on the document below.

A HUGE thank you to the Friends of the Library for their generous donation of $26,464.00 for two brand new, updated self check machines. These new machines can check out multiple books at a time (not including magazines, DVDs or inter-library loan books), can easily renew books, and provides recommended reads. The Friends of the Library raise money from their monthly book sales and then make donations to the Sechelt Library when needs arise. In the past their contributions have gone towards purchasing new, comfortable, reading chairs, shelving, special adult programs and special children programs. We thank them with gratitude for their continued support and generosity.
