Local History & Indie Authors

Part of the Library’s vision is to preserve the history and culture of Powell River. One way we do this is by building a collection of materials that relate to our local history and culture. This collection includes materials that are mostly about Powell River and the Sunshine Coast. We also collect published materials by local authors.



If you are a local independent author from the qathet District, and your print book is recently published, has an ISBN, and is professionally bound (please no spiral binding) please contact Assistant Chief Librarian, Natalie Porter to submit your work: porter@prpl.ca
