Incredibly, this library for the expense is not being used to its full advantages. I rarely see it full, I don't see any announcements about things going on here, I would love to see an increase in its use. The coffee vendor, Thatchers, is making...More

Very nice and popular public library. Public parking behind the building. It can be very crowded. Great place to take the kids to read or rent a movie.

As a lover of books, the Vancouver Library is a favorite place, but the addition of a coffee bar, quiet nooks, the balcony and much more make my writer's heart rejoice. A great place to quietly peruse books, read, bring the littles to explore, or...More
