Naming of Library Branches and Buildings

The Western Counties Regional Library Board is responsible for the naming of the library branches and buildings. The Board will make decisions on naming libraries in consultation with library building owners.

The Board will give priority to naming its branches and buildings based on the geographic location. This will help the public easily identify and locate library branches.

Naming priorities in order:

  • Names based on geographic location
  • Names that reflect a significant contribution by persons or organizations to the library or its mission
  • Name of the centre or complex in which the branch is located

The objective is to give clear and simple names to library branches and buildings so that they are easy to identify and locate.
