About the Branch

We respectfully acknowledge that this branch is situated on the unceded traditional territories of the K’ómoks First Nation, who have been caretakers of the land since time immemorial. The Union Bay library branch opened in 1949. It is the smallest VIRL branch at only 300 square feet, and is adjoined to the historic Union Bay Post Office, built in 1913.
