Welcome to the West End Well Co-op Lending Library

We have all been inspired and influenced by amazing books and films; they have clarified our understanding of the world, informed our decisions, and connected us with our communities.

The West End Well Lending Library is a specialized collection of books generously donated by individuals, endeavouring to:

  • share knowledge and resources
  • inform and inspire.
  • nourish the Co-op’s values of Community, Sustainability and Empowerment.

The Books
The main library is in the upstairs meeting room with a sample of books in the Café. Because our café and grocery are currently closed, you may view the collection catalogue online (www.westendwell.ca) under Programs/Lending library. If you are interested in borrowing books, please contact library@westendwell.ca.
