About the Branch
The land on which this library stands is the unceded territory of the Nuxalk Nation, whose relationships with the land continue to this day. Bella Coola library branch officially opened on April 9, 1981 in a tiny room with a collection of 4,000 books. In 1985, the library expanded when it took over the site of the old bank. It opened in its new location at the Co-op in 2012 and is an important community resource for residents of every age.
