Following changes to Provincial Medical Health Officer orders, masks are no longer required when visiting the library but you can wear one if you’d like. 

Customers can browse our full library collection, pick up holds, use our photocopier, and use one of our computers for 60 minutes.

If you would prefer not to come inside the library, you may phone us and we will bring your items out to you at our library door.

Our book return slot is open 24 hours a day.

About the Branch

The land on which this library stands is the unceded territory of the Stz’uminus First Nation, whose relationships with the land continue to this day.

The Ladysmith library branch joined in the Vancouver Island Library system in 1937. Before that, it had a brief history as a public library, opening in 1935 with a collection of 800 volumes. The library branch moved to its current location on First Avenue in 1994.
