James Bay Library - sxʷeŋxʷəŋ təŋəxʷ

Description:

The sxʷeŋxʷəŋ təŋəxʷ James Bay Branch is the newest branch in the GVPL system, officially opening to the public on May 26, 2018. Pronounced s-hweng hw-ung tongue-oo-hw, sxʷeŋxʷəŋ təŋəxʷ is the Lekwungen name for James Bay, a name selected by the City of Victoria through their "Name That Library" campaign and in consultation with the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations.

From opening day, the residents of James Bay have made the library their own: families visit the branch as part of their routines; writers use the study rooms to work on their books; artists seek out material for inspiration; and readers love having brand new books to take home. The community feels at home in this space with its high ceilings and natural light. Our patrons can enjoy multiple seating options including a laptop bar and bistro tables.
