About the Branch

The land on which this library stands is the territory of the Nuxalk Nation whose relationship with the land continues to this day. The 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 at its new location in the Co-op building in 2012 and is an important community resource for residents of every age.
