Oak Bay Library
Stroll through quaint Oak Bay Village, and zip up the walkway across from Rogers' Chocolates to the Oak Bay Branch, in the same building as the Monterey Recreation Centre.
The pleasant, old-time atmosphere of Oak Bay's main street extends into the library. A stained glass window with bright-coloured shelves of books greets you in the foyer.
Libris the Lion, a wooden carousel animal hand-crafted and gifted to the library by the Woodcrafters Club at the Monterey Centre, marks the entrance to the children's area and is a constant companion for young ones as they discover the magic of reading.
The Tonkin heritage house, built in 1913, became part of the library in 1999, adding to the branch a sunny reading room, magazine room with cozy fireplace and a program room for patrons of all ages to explore new ideas.
