I love the grand Roman Colosseum inspired Vancouver Library. It is a stunning building.
It is a multi-level building with open crossways connecting each floor. When I first visited the library, soon after its opening, I wondered how long this would last before all the crossways would be enclosed?
If somebody dropped an iphone or book, it could knock somebody out cold below.
I’m really happy that all these years later, the open-plan persisted, and with the stunning art, its luxurious feel.
It is a clean, modern, busy and well patronised place. This library houses so much: city views from the windows, a massive children’s section, thousands and thousands of books and magazines, multiple filing cabinets of maps, census records and more, a box light and so much more.
This library is well worth a visit. It really is an impressive place.
