Residents of the Hillside-Quadra, Oaklands, and North Park neighbourhoods in Victoria, BC have been without a community library branch for far too long.

They deserve access to the valuable resources that a local library provides including books and other materials, job search resources, meeting rooms, classes, storytime for kids, and a community hub. 

The GVPL Facilities Report "Making Space for the Future" (2010) explicitly recognizes the need for a new "Hillside neighbourhood" library branch. It says that the location is to be determined by the city in consultation with GVPL, according to the criteria outlined here:

Now that the sxʷeŋxʷəŋ təŋəxʷ James Bay Branch is complete, it is time to start planning to finally meet the needs of the Hillside community.

Therefore, we call upon you to include funds in the 2019 City of Victoria budget to begin the planning process for improved local library services in Hillside-Quadra, Oaklands and North Park.
