Thanks to our Supporters and Funders!

We are funded, in part, by the Sunshine Coast Regional District.  Thanks to the Sunshine Coast Regional District for ongoing financial support. Pender Harbour residents may also use the Sechelt and District Public Library, thanks to tax support through the SCRD.


The Pender Harbour Reading Centre thanks our Rotary Club of Pender Harbour, Madeira Park for their continued support over many years.

Help support their 50/50 fundraiser

The Pender Harbour Reading Centre

  • The READING CENTRE is operated by the Pender Harbour Reading Society as a non-profit society providing a limited library service to residents of Pender Harbour, Egmont, and Secret Cove. We are managed and are run by an entirely volunteer workforce. Thanks to the devotion and hard work of our volunteers, the library has thrived for more than fifty years. We are always looking for additional volunteers.  Find out about volunteering at PHRC.
  • We specialize in leisure reading materials, based on the interests of our members. We participate in BC’s Interlibrary Loan System and can borrow books from other libraries, provided they were published two or more years ago.
  • We have an almost complete collection of Harbour Publishing’s books. These are books about the Pacific Northwest and, especially the Sunshine Coast. Look for the books with orange dots on the spine.
  • Our funding is based upon an initial bequest donated in 1982, other small grants, and donations which are always welcome.
