Yes please!.

The Vancouver Public library is an astounding piece of architecture. One is free to browse books, look at their collections and of course enjoy the shops around.

Moshe Sadfe designed it in the shape of a collesuem - the collections connect to all other VPL libaries - it is just an experience - right in downtown - Hornby Street - prepare to spend days in the many floors - world class.

Firstly I am going to declare that my visit was in 2006 [ there was no option for this, yet regardless how long ago, my opinion is true today from online connection ]

Architecturally, this library is stunning in anyones book.

Some go to libraries for information, some for enjoyment and some for study;
my purpose was a little of all three and the experience was thoroughly rewarding.
