Vancouver Public Library, Vancouver Reviews

  • I am totally in love with the library. It is well designed, well lit, well equipped, and very conducive for learning / researching / reading. The other feedback mentioned that there might be "interesting characters" in the library, but I did not encounter any. The security seems to be very alert and is doing a wonderful job to ensure the environment is pleasant for everyone. Tip: In order to use the free wireless network in the library (which is extremely fast), you just need to bring your ID and proof of address in Vancouver, to the front desk and request for a free Vancouver Public Library (VPL) membership + card. The process is done instantaneously and seamlessly. Perfect!

  • This is the best library I've ever been to! First of all, it's a very quiet place to study. The staff is helpful. Also, the library is very large and has a beautiful design. There is a huge selection of books (even in some other languages).

  • This public library is very well located in the heart of the downtown of Vancouver. The building architecture is very unusual and very surprising for a library. It looks like a small Coliseum. Nevertheless the building looks a bit old and may need some refreshment. The space is large and there is a lot of choice of books!

  • Beautiful facility that has multiple levels. There are also some shops on the outside. Great location in the middle go downtown Vancouver aswell. Nice place to visit if you aren't from the area.

  • It should be open 24 hrs. It’s a library but you feel like you are going to sleeping Center. It will be full of homeless people that are sleeping on chairs in cold weather and also one time I found bed bugs on me because of the chair that I used.
