South Cowichan (Mill Bay)

The South Cowichan Library in the Mill Bay Centre is open full hours. The outside book drop is open whenever the library is closed.

There are public computers for internet access as well as a printer, a copier, and scanner. Please bring your library card with you or consider downloading the MyLibrary! app in order to use the touchless self-checkout machine.

South Cowichan Home Delivery: customers of the South Cowichan library who are unable to come in due to a disability or illness may be able to have library materials delivered once a month by a library volunteer. If interested, please contact the branch for more information.

We also have Book Bundles! Request forms are located online: Adult Book Bundle and Youth Book Bundle. We’ll put together some items and then you can drop by to pick them up.

Masks are no longer required when visiting the library, but you can wear one if you’d like. 

About the Branch

The land on which this library stands is Coast Salish territory, specifically of the Quw’utsun’ (Cowichan) and Malahat peoples whose relationships with the land continue to this day. The South Cowichan library branch opened in 1989. The original name of the library was the Shawnigan Lake branch, established in 1946.
