Library Resources

Our Gabriola library now has a GROWLS donated selection of books pertaining to our island's local wildlife. The titles can be viewed on this page.These books do not circulate off island and so are always available to our community. All have been bought with money donated to GROWLS by individuals who specifically would like a book bought on their behalf. Each book has a nameplate inside to indicate that it is a GROWLS donation. If anyone wishes to make such a donation please go to the contact menu and scroll to donations.Joanna Mackenzie is heading up this project and so please mark it for her attention. Suggestions for new titles are always welcome. Here is the LINK.
