Nellie McClung GVPL

Originally opened in 1976, the Nellie McClung Branch was rebuilt in 1991 following a fire, which totally destroyed it. The Branch was named after Nellie McClung, a well-known suffragette and author who lived in Gordon Head from 1934-51.

The Greater Victoria Public Library endeavours to grow with local communities to benefit present and future generations. The library system serves 10 municipalities in the Capital Regional District.
