Happy Monday to you all! On this last day of September, I’m just making it in time to celebrate Library Card Sign Up Month!
I started my ‘lovely libraries’ feature last year (and then abandoned it ) to talk about Toronto libraries – and while I’ll still do that (eventually), let’s talk about Vancouver libraries today!
I’ve been in Vancouver for 3 weeks now and been to 2 libraries so far (from 2 different systems). And of course, I signed up for library cards at BOTH of those libraries!! Technically I could’ve borrowed from the other system with the first library card but I’d rather have full access and the added weight to my wallet.
Both of the ones I visited are so beautiful and so big! Vancouver Public Library’s central branch is definitely the bigger of the two – it even has a rooftop garden. But the North Van one is walking distance from my house and has a fireplace and cute coffee shop on the ground floor, so I’d say they’re pretty equally matched.
I’ve now got access to 4 different library systems, since my previous cards from other provinces haven’t expired yet so I can read SO MANY BOOKS!! There’s also a 3rd library system in my area that I’m also eligible for and you know I’m gonna get a card there too :))))
Do you have a local library you love to visit? What do you find to be the most important features in a library?
Let me know in the comments and show your libraries some love!!
