It's a library that looks like a Roman coliseum. It's not really a huge attraction on its own, but recommend it if you want to go inside and do some quiet reading.

Think of a modern Roman coliseum in the heart of the city, and now picture that it is a library. Not only is the Library Square beautiful from the outside, but it is spectacular inside as well.

This library is amazingly beautiful. Very special architecture sort of like a roman coliseum. You have thousands of books inside of all topics. There are also some coffee shops downstairs.

In the centre of town with a gorgeous garden on the roof. Great place to read and relax. The small cafes in the library give a comfortable resting place and good coffee break

Really fun architecture modeling the Roman coliseum with a large green area that is great for pictures! Yet there is also a beautiful library inside that should be seen. Make time in your trip for his Vancouver gem:)
