Great place to sit and enjoy the sun in the summer. Block away from food stores. Grab something to eat and enjoy the Robson St's activity!

Library Square? A good place to pass by, and take good pictures of the library ;) and that's about everything you can do there, now if you cross the street you can go to one of the cheapest pubs in Vancouver... Sleeves only 3$ all day!!

I was walking around down town area of Vancouver and happened to pass Library Square. I did not go in the library as I was walking around exploring on foot.

Our library is a most unique building with a state of the art library, great programs and cute eateries in the gallery area.

take a walk by here, stroll through the grounds, stop and have a coffee... it's a neat place to see. and if you're a big fan of the TV show "Fringe", you'll recognize it as Fringe Division Headquarters in the alternate universe (the "redverse"). enjoy!

Worth walking past here to admire the architecture of this unusual looking building. Quite impressive as it takes up an entire city block.

I stopped here for like an hour to grab a bite and enjoy the view beside the stairs with the fountains. Very relaxing, nice place to let your hair down before you go rush off to your touristy things again.
