      The Vancouver Public Library is more than a library. Although it is considered the third biggest library in Canada, it is also an architectural marvel, designed to mirror the modern grandeur of the Roman Coliseum.

      The architect was no less than the legendary Moshe Safdie. The Vancouver Public Library is also an ideal meeting spot, what with its own array of coffee shops and restaurants in the main floor.

      It is also a favorite Hollywood shooting area due to its impressive façade and structure. The frontal part is an ideal spot to bask in


      the sun and behold the rather impressive Vancouver city landscape.

      It’s also a stone’s throw away from the GM Place, where NHL games are played as well as big-budget concerts, and soon the 2010 Vancouver Olympics come February.

      The library was first opened to the public in 1995. It is a short walk from the Granville Sky Train station in downtown Vancouver. It is one of my favorite spots in the city, as it offers free Wi-Fi access, so I usually bring my laptop and sign in using my library card access ...


      • numbers.

        There are also plenty of Internet-enabled computer stations, which any one with a library card can use for an hour at the most. With your own laptop, however, you can surf the Web as much as you like for as long as the library is open.

        The library has every possible modern facility that one can expect. It has plenty of study tables and chairs. It also hosts free Internet and computer tutorials, as well as job hunting seminars from time to time. What I find most appealing is the writing

        seminars that become available from time to time, hosted by writers-in-residence or a visiting published writer.

        Not only do I find the book, periodical, and media collection rather extensive. Every so often, I chance upon choice DVD titles like Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, and the classics, such as Casablanca or Ben-Hur. So rather than rent such titles from the video store for fee, I check them out for free. I even have two weeks in which to return them!
