Hornby Island

About the Branch

Nestled against a backdrop of a mature and tranquil forest of every shade of green, VIRL’s Hornby Island branch sits in a picture-perfect setting. After 26 years of serving the community at the New Horizons Centre, the building received some much-needed love and attention in 2016.
