City of North Vancouver Library

June 7, 2014

The sole library branch for the City of North Vancouver is one of the anchor buildings of the Civic Square. Using the surrounding landscape to advantage, this multi-storey building provides a variety of spaces, indoor and outdoor, for patrons who are using library resources. The library is set back from Lonsdale Avenue. The location provides views towards Burrard Inlet and downtown Vancouver.


  • A clock tower could be a good feature at Britannia (perhaps in the Napier Greenway?)
  • There are separated, quiet group-study areas.
  • The outdoor seating areas have water features to promote tranquility.
  • There is a completely separate teen room (no adults allowed after a certain time).
  • Stroller parking is an issue.
  • They have an attractive, bright board room that may be rented.
