NVDPL Express Library


The new Lions Gate Community Recreation Centre opens on April 20 at 10am, and we're thrilled to introduce our brand new service: NVDPL Express Library. 

The Lions Gate Community Recreation Centre features a full-sized gymnasium, multi-purpose spaces, an art studio, a beautiful public plaza, Red Cross Health Equipment Loan Program (HELP) operated by Capilano Community Services Society, and a brand-new Express Library operated by North Vancouver District Public Library.

NVDPL’s Express Library is a boutique library service featuring a collection of the latest in new and popular materials! Borrow books, movies, music and more from NVDPL’s Express Library and unlock your next adventure at the North Shore’s first-ever book pick-up lockers. The Holds Pickup Locker allows patrons to place holds for material from any NVDPL location online and conveniently pick them up during their visit to centre.

Library staff are available to provide assistance with selecting material, getting a library card, signing up for a library program, and more. Chromebooks are available for adult cardholders for use in the living room, or patrons can access digital resources on a mobile device using free public wifi.

Express Library hours differ from regular NVDPL hours. View the hours for Express Library at Lions Gate.
