VPL Central Branch

350 West Georgia Street, Vancouver BC



Vancouver Public Library Foundation will be hosting its second annual Library Gala event on VPL’s levels 8 & 9 and in the rooftop garden.

Thanks to the generosity of library supporters, the sold-out 2018 gala raised over $585,000 for the Vancouver Public Library in its inaugural year! We are ready to continue in the spirit of giving with another exciting gala program for 2019.

This year’s gala will celebrate the unique community connections that libraries create. The gala will raise funds to expand and enhance spaces and programs at Vancouver Public Library’s 21 branches across the city —connecting people in your neighbourhood. The Vancouver Public Library system welcomes 6,341,662 visitors and hosts over 10,000 programs every year.

Your library is a place to connect, learn and share. A place where everyone is welcome.

We look forward to having you become a part of our story
