We discovered this area while walking around Vancouver. Consolidating Vancouver Public Library's Central Branch, Federal Office Tower, and retail and service facilities, the Library Square occupies a city block in Downtown Vancouver. This is definitely an area worth visiting.

Grab a coffee and site outside to people watch. Yes there is the library but great outdoor space for lunch or what have you.

One of the biggest libraries I've ever visited. For a student, this is an ideal place to study. I've seen the children's section located on the bottom floor and it's very kid friendly and spacious. I really like the design of the building...very modern.

It has a shape of a coliseum, it is a beautiful architecture, inside you do not feel drowned among books and walls, it has its floors open and you can see everything, a very comfortable place to spend it in rainy season.

Came for the building, not the books, it's a fascinating building, just like the Coliseum but without the buskers and selfies. Quite fascinating and unique

I enjoy going inside, able to sit down with something to drink and look at the library that has at least seven floors.

Unique architecture, helpful staff and A/V lab including mics, recording software etc...also adds value to this already great location and overall fee. All the normal amenties like...More

As you are walking towards it looks like the coliseum in Rome. Nice replica of an old architecture with history.

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is

options. However, located right on the waterfront of
