Following the Provincial Medical Health Officer orders, masks are now required when visiting the library. This is in addition to physical distancing, occupancy limits, and other safety measures.

A properly worn mask covers your nose and mouth at all times. Masks are available. Speak to a member of staff.

The Masset branch is open for Sit Down service! You can come inside and browse our collection once again!

About the Branch

We respectfully acknowledge that this branch is situated on the traditional territory of the Haida Nation, whose historical relationship with their land continues to the present day.

The iconic log building that houses the Masset Branch was the end result of a long story of libraries in the community that started in 1912. that included people’s houses, schools, and more.  The current library opened in 1980 under the direction of the Masset Public Library Association and officially became part of VIRL in 1983.
