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 Woss library was originally staffed by volunteers for one hour a week in the old kindergarten building. The library branch moved to its current location in 2001.
The new Woss Library building opens on December 18, 2020!
