  Vancouver Public Library
by joanj

This is the most impressive Public Library I have ever seen. It is modelled on the Roman Colloseum, and having been to the original, yes the resemb lance is there.

The library covers a whole city block between Georgia and Robson, and Hamilton and Homer Streets.

It was designed by Moshe Safdie, and is definitely worth seeing.

On the mezzanine level, you will also find indoor sidewalk bistros, gift, flower and card shops.

I took quite a few photographs of the library to show the different angles, they are on more things to see pages.

Address: Georgia/Robson and Hamilton/Homer
