About the Branch

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

The Sointula branch opened in 1990. The branch underwent a renovation in 2003 which allowed for the addition of a cozy reading nook.
