Welcome to the Jewish Community Centre of Victoria Library

Our Library is a great community resource. Open whenever the Centre is open, its collection contains books on a range of topics of Jewish interest. We have added new volumes to several categories, e.g. fiction, mystery, cookbooks, holocaust, memoir and women’s interest. Canadian writers are well represented.

Books are shelved alphabetically by category. Comfortable chairs and magnifying glasses are provided. Come in and browse or view the online library catalog and the Library News and Resources page.

Is there a book that you would like the library to add?
Visit the Acquisition Project page or fill out this form.

At this time, we are being very selective about adding anything more to our shelves. Please refer to the JCCV Library Book Acquisition Project page.

We might accept donations of suitable books in very good to excellent condition, preferably published in the last 10 years, if we do not already have them. If you think you might have books that fit these criteria (not Encyclopedias nor books in Hebrew or Yiddish), please contact the JCCV office at or 250-477-7185 with details.
