Greater Victoria Library - Oak Bay Branch
1442 Monterey Ave
The Oak Bay branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library is a key component and a major draw within Oak Bay Village. The branch library is co-located with the Monterey Recreation Centre and can be accessed from both Monterey Avenue on the east and Hampshire Road on the west.
The Oak Bay Library is the second busiest branch in all of Victoria (behind just the Central Libraray), providing public Internet access, children's services, audio books, movies, and more.
A unique aspect of the Oak Bay branch library is its incorporation of floor space from a stately, older residence on the Hampshire Road side. On a small scale, it also features one of the region’s most appealing examples of public art, which is the “literary-themed” stained glass window in the entrance foyer.
