Port McNeill

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. If you need a mask, staff can provide one.

We are now open for Walkthrough service. We welcome you to come inside the branch, a maximum of two people at a time.

You can browse the shelves (up to 15 minutes), or pop in to grab your holds.

If you prefer Takeout service, we will check out your holds and bring them to the door.

There is no public computer use at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience that may cause.

There are no fines or late fees at this time. Fines may appear on your account while items are in quarantine. Please ignore them; they will be be removed from your account.

If you’ve returned an item, and your account still shows it as checked out, the item is in quarantine, for everyone’s safety.

About the Branch

The land on which we gather is the unceded traditional territory of the Kwakwaka’wakw peoples, specifically the Kwakiutl and Namgis nations, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.

The Port McNeill library branch opened in 1972. Before this, Port McNeill enjoyed community library service. The library branch has been at its current location on Broughton since 1990, and was renovated in 2006.
