Vancouver Central Library Sweet 16

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The central branch of the Vancouver Public Library will be celebrating its “Sweet 16” anniversary next month by hosting a late-night, all-ages music and dance party. The coliseum-style building has been an iconic part of downtown Vancouver’s skyline, and has even played a starring role in various TV series and films produced in Hollywood North.

You'll find the lions on Level 3.
