"The Library is the best back-up option that exists! If there is anything you don’t have, you can go to your Library... Computers, internet, everything...I have even used the Library so my mom can have air conditioning."

“I support the Vancouver Public Library because literacy is fundamental and opens so many doors. And we’ve seen first-hand how much of an impact it’s had on our house!”

“VPL gives people an opportunity to reach whatever their career goals are. In a world changing so quickly, especially in non-traditional career paths, this is invaluable. There is a lot of learning you can do… all for free!”
