Vancouver Public Library

000466EndFragment:000002807

I went to the main/central branch of the VPL. It looks like the Colosseum – it is a seven story building. A few weeks after I left – my sister told me it added a roof top area. There is so many offered items/services. Many tables and computers and creating areas for creators – soundproof rooms patrons can rent out to record content by booking with their library card. And there are escalators and elevators going floor to floor. Really nicely build and oraganized.
