Our Planning Process

The survey phase of our planning process is completed and we are planning a series of meetings with volunteers and Reading Centre members to share and validate the results.  When we have some dates, we will let you know.


Thank you to everyone who has participated so far.



Check out our new books!

Once on the LibraryThing site, you can view all the authors in a list if you wish, then look at the individual books of that author.

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 bequestts and small grants, and donations which are always welcome.
