The West Vancouver Memorial Library was founded in 1950 as a memorial to honour those who gave their lives during the Second World War.
Located at 1950 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, the Memorial Library currently serves a population of close to 46,000. The Library has continuously grown over the past 63 years and now boasts a collection of ~327,000 volumes (including non-print) as well as one of the highest circulation rates in Canada (23 per capita).
Not only does the West Vancouver Memorial Library offer fun programs and events for people of all ages, but also special events such as the Friday night concert series! More information can be found by connecting to the link provided below.
Finally, in 2009 the West Vancouver Memorial Library was granted as the very first Safe Harbour location on the entire North Shore. The Safe Harbour sticker on the front door of the Library indicates that someone who has experienced mistreatment or is upset will receive a helping hand such as a telephone to use, a place to be safe from harm, and information about how to seek further assistance (police, medical, social services etc.).
