Meet us at the Fair!

Join North Vancouver District Public Library at Library Day at the PNE on Wednesday, August 22.

Simply present a BC library card at the admission gate to receive entry for just $6, and save $9 off the standard adult admission fee. You can save the extra cash—or use it to buy some mini doughnuts! The choice is yours. Kids under the age of 13 are always free.

Once you’re in, make sure to stop by the Library Zone, near Toon City and the Popnology Exhibit, for some fun and FREE activities with BC libraries. 

Don’t have a library card yet? Don’t worry! Visit us to get one for FREE.

Public Library Day is brought to you by your local library, Public Library InterLINK, Tim Hortons, Raise a Reader, and the PNE.

Ron Norman: Slouching Towards Innocence
Monday, August 13 | 312 Esplanade Street

Ron Norman was an award-winner newspaper reporter, columnist and editor before working for twelve years in the British Columbia government. When he left government, he was Deputy Minister and Head of Communications - one of the highest positions attainable in the public service. He lives in Brentwood Bay, BC, and Slouching Towards Innocence is his first novel. 


David Crerar and Bill Maurer: The Glorious Mountains of Vancouver's North Shore: A Peakbagger’s Guide
Tuesday, September 4 | 312 Esplanade Street

David Crerar and Bill Maurer present their new book, The Glorious Mountains of Vancouver’s North Shore, a guidebook for outdoor enthusiasts interested in exploring the peaks and trails of Vancouver’s internationally renowned coastal-mountain landscape. The beautiful mountains of the North Shore define Vancouver, but few Vancouverites know of the natural beauty and adventure that lies within them, or even their names and history. This guide offers something for everyone, from casual hikers to hard-core climbers, from gentle ramblers to ultra-fit trail runners, to parents introducing their children to the splendours of nature, and to those merely curious about what is out there, so close and yet so far.


Drop in! No registration required.
