Galiano Conservancy Library

Library/Resource Centre

The Library/Resource Centre contains a diverse collection of materials on all aspects of the environment. This includes such topics as: field guides on plants, animals, and birds; nature writing; books covering environmental issues such as pollution, climate change, forest destruction, wilderness protection, pesticides and other toxic substances and safe alternatives; writings on First Nations history and issues; local history; “green” building and land use planning; groundwater, stream and ocean health, and restoration of ecosystems. We also have fun books and resources for children and young readers. This information may be in the form of books, reports, journals, brochures, videos, audio cassettes, pictures, slides, maps, or CD’s.

The Library/Resource Centre is open to the public for reference and the borrowing of materials for up to 3 weeks at a time. On Thursdays and Saturdays from Noon to 4PM a staff member is on duty to help the public use the Library. The Conservancy is also open most weekdays so feel free to stop by, and if possible, please call ahead to be sure someone will be there to help you.
