I don't go into any branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library anymore because it's full of:

A) homeless 50something male drug addicts,
B) 30something natives (and their kids) who live in low income housing,
C) librarians and security guards who feel that they can push anyone around at any time for no reason at all.

So, if you're tired of the lower class people at the Greater Victoria Public Library, come to Camosun College and use the internet. The staff are friendly, and the other internet users are clean, fashionable 20somethings :)

It can be as noisy in the library as it is on the street outside. I wish they'd enforce anti-noise regulations in the library. Those excessively loud earphones drive me nuts, and the people who talk on cellphones all through their computer sessions. I sometimes wonder why these noisy people bother to come to the library at all.
hello.

Wow racist much! "Full of natives and their kids"
If they didnt take their kids to the library, you would probably complain that they are raising a bunch of illiterate
Bastards....
Damned if you do damned if you don't

You're a pathetic case, aren't you? YOu think that only the lowest of the low count as public?

I think that all members of the public are entitled to use the library, but their behavior there should be civilized. If it isn't, the library isn't the place for them. It's up to the library staff to enforce the rules.

I'm not racist against all natives. Just the trashy natives of BC.

I'm a proud Mohawk whose ancestors are from Oka, Quebec.

Ok so you think your people are the good natives and BC natives are lesser people.....

No, your right you barely sound like a racist at all......in fact you can't be racist , because you have a color tv!

You really have no idea how bad you sound do you?

Maybe your native mother should have taken you to the public library more as a small child you illiterate bastard!

Jan, you missed my point, public means it will be a microcosm, a simple cross section of society. My point is that public means that everyone is welcome.......ie: homeless men and " low income housing people have an equal right to library access as do stuck up oak bay fools.....public mean everyone!!

By the way I am posting as 2 people... I am 'hello and 'really' so I think that only a fool would call me pathetic, instead of call the OP(original poster) pathetic

Any more words of infinite wisdom???

Ps: my mom a masters degree in library sciences from the U of Chicago

My only other word of "infinite wisdom" is that I agree with you. It's how people behave that is important. A library shouldn't be as rowdy and noisy as the street outside.

Excuse me, but my mom is not native, she is white. I get my native from my dad's side of the family.

Shows how much you know.

I agree the main downtown victoria library is turning into a homeless crack head shelter. It was not this trashy in years past. The out lying gvpl branches in the suburbs have a much higher class of customers. The people in the burbs appear to have money, status, public image class, and better manners.

You are good! I like all people who have class, style, social skills, and are not really annoying. A trailer park trash is trailer trash hick regardless of one's culture or ethnicity. There are valid reasons why I and many others don't patronize places like Walmart, Dollar Stores, Zellers, XS Cargo, Value Village, WIN, Salvation Army Stores, etc very much. I can feel my style, class, intelligence, prosperity, healthy body image slip away as soon as I walk in the front door and surround myself in that environment. You are or you become who and what you hang out with.

~ not all people that shop in those stores are "low class" maybe they're students that can't afford new clothes all the time, or people with disabilities, or the elderly. Not all rich folks have good manners/ class either.
