SUPPORT

GVPL introduced a new program guide to make it easier for you to discover the programs and services available at the library. From genealogy workshops, to musical storytimes, to help with your iPad ‌ there is something for everyone at the library! Program guides are available at all branches or online at gvpl.ca Adults Teens

Library lovers curled up with a good book and donated the money they would have spent on a night out to support the library. The Stay at Home and Read a Book campaign attracted many new donors and raised awareness about the important role private donations play in helping the library enhance its collection and pilot innovative programs and services.

Children learn essential skills from play, and toys are an important way to facilitate play. GVPL developed the Skill Builders Adaptive Toys collection to provide families with young children who have cognitive, physical, sensory or communicative challenges with the opportunity to borrow adaptive toys. The kits also include information and resources for parents and caregivers. This special collection was made possible with funding from the Victoria Foundation.

SERVE In 2011, GVPL worked with Literacy Victoria to set up a simple lending library of donated and discarded books at the Vancouver Island Regional Correctional Centre. The lending service was extremely popular. In 2015, GVPL established the first formalized library service at the correctional centre in more than 100 years. Inmates may now borrow books from the GVPL collection using a shared corporate account.
