The District participates, along with most of the local municipalities, in the Greater Victoria Public Library system (GVPL). Our local branch is located at the West Shore Parks and Recreation site, 1759 Island Highway. You can also find an express concept library at 775 Goldstream Avenue in Langford. The District pays a portion of the central branch costs for the administration of all of the branches. District of Highlands residents may access any branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library within the Capital Region. Greater Victoria Public Libraries offer many exciting services for all family members.
Given the large geographical area of the Highlands, a number of our residents also use facilities in other municipalities, such as the District of Saanich, that are closer to their homes than the West Shore Parks and Recreation facilities.
