Ukrainian Fraternal Society Library in Vancouver

Branch 20 of the Ukrainian Fraternal Society has an extensive library of over 22,000 volumes.

In 1928 UFSC Vancouver Branch 20 launched a library during a Shevchenko concert in the home of choir director P. Pavliukevych. Initially the collections were stored in many halls and various residences, including the homes of P. Zhary and F. Bogdan. Among others, F. Bogdan contributed many of his own works to the library including the UFSC publication British Columbia and Ukrainians and Dictionary of Ukrainian Surnames in Canada. The extensive library now contains over 22,000 volumes, including special collections of historic photographs, music, and personal archives.

Members and interested parties may visit it in the Auditorium of the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral located at 154 – 10 Avenue East, Vancouver BC V5T 1Z4. The librarian, Oleg Litwinow can be reached at 604.856.4544.
