Share your story about the City Library!

The North Vancouver City Library has partnered with CityStudio North Vancouver to ask former and current residents of North Vancouver to share stories or memorable experiences that they have had at the North Vancouver City Library. As part of a CityStudio North Vancouver collaboration, students from a Capilano University Business course taught by Mitra Kiamanesh are collecting this first round of stories to assist with the Library’s archival efforts. Stories could range from childhood experiences at the library, how the library has provided community, the role that the library has played in your experience during the COVID-19 pandemic, or other great memories you may have.

For nearly 100 years, the North Vancouver City Library has been a source of civic pride, providing residents as well as youth and children with access to information, technology, education, and a safe and quiet space. It currently serves a population of over 56,000 residents, as well as customers from neighbouring cities and districts. For many years, the library’s objective has been to serve as a community meeting place and a gateway to knowledge, as well as supporting life-long learning and literacy.

Any stories, memories, or experiences may be sent to the email below. These messages can be in whatever form you’d like, including written text, voice memo, photos, or videos. The stories you submit may be shared via the North Vancouver City Library and partner platforms, such as social media, websites and newsletters. Please indicate in your email whether you wish to keep your story anonymous. We look forward to hearing your incredible stories!

Please submit your stories to by June 19th, 2021.
