Branch Information: The Saanich Centennial branch opened Sept. 2007. The branch is a partnership between the Greater Victoria Public Library and the Municipality of Saanich and provides a library and Saanich Archives in a shared facility. This provides opportunities for library staff and archives staff to work together to enhance services to the public.

Environmental design elements created a “green building” that makes efficient use of natural resources. This branch is the first GVPL branch to pursue Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. A large part of the project funding is being provided by a grant from the Canada/BC Infrastructure Program. The building’s architects are CEI Neilson Architecture Planning Interiors.
