Good Reads for Seniors

Updated: Mar 23

The Greater Victoria Public Library has adapted its services during the pandemic. You can pick up items you have put on hold and browse a small selection of available books in-person.


For those who self-identify as senior or immuno-compromised the library is open from 11:00 am-12:00 pm, Monday—Saturday. Everyone else can visit the library from 12-4PM. You can also access books digitally anytime via CloudLibrary, and the Digital Resources, and EBooks section of their website at www.gvpl.ca.
