Port Hardy

About the Branch

The land on which we gather is the unceded traditional territory of the Kwakwaka’wakw peoples, specifically the Kwakiutl nation, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day. The Port Hardy library branch opened in 1972. Prior to this, Port Hardy enjoyed a community library service through local donations and the Travelling Library Commission. The library branch moved to its current location in 1979 and was renovated in 2016.
