Thanks to Pat’s generosity, vision and thoughtfulness, Library patrons can now enjoy the first-ever dedicated quiet space in the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver. Named in her honour, the Pat Graham Reading Room offers library patrons a quiet, bright space for reading, study and reflection. With panoramic windows offering views of the city and comfortable reading chairs, this space fills to capacity on a daily basis.
For years the people of Vancouver asked for a space like this and with Pat’s gift the Library was able to realize this long-held dream. Because of Pat’s generous gift to the Library, this Reading Room provides a sanctuary for others to find the same delight in reading as she did. Pat has left a legacy that guarantees that our community has access to the knowledge, culture and skills that they need to thrive for generations to come.
