About the Branch

We respectfully acknowledge that this branch is situated on the unceded traditional territories of the K’ómoks First Nation, who have been caretakers of the land since time immemorial. Located in the heart of downtown Courtenay, this branch, with its striking architecture and well-loved staff, is a popular attraction for visitors and residents of Courtenay alike. Longtime residents of the Comox Valley will draw parallels between the library’s wood beam construction and the Creamery building that once stood at the site.
