About the Branch

The land on which we gather is the unceded traditional territory of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the T’sou-ke First Nation, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.

The Sooke branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library system was established in 1963.

New Sooke Library

A new library is under development for Sooke.
