Central Library Entry Level Renewal
The revived main floor of Central Branch will serve as a dynamic gateway to the library. Befitting a library in a city that cares about learning, this entryway will showcase the many ways people learn: through books and reading, dialogue in many languages and learning events, multimedia and technology, and interaction with each other. Central Library will also create new programming spaces, comfortable lounges for meet-ups, spaces for quick technology access, and showcases for VPL’s newest collections. Vancouver is a vibrant international city, and as such, we will also feature the library’s multilingual collections here to reflect the rich diversity of our community.
The redesigned spaces will also recognize and celebrate the cultures of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil Waututh) and sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) Coast Salish peoples, each with their own rich cultural heritage and bright futures which will be honoured and amplified.
This initiative is part of the Central Library Renewal Campaign.
