Launch: The Vancouver Women's Library

  • 1670 Franklin Street Vancouver, BC Canada (map)

Join us for the launch of The Vancouver Women’s Library! We are incredibly excited to open this space to the public and revive the rich herstory of women in conversation through literature.
We suggest a cash donation of $5 - $20 which includes a membership to access the library. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of these unceded Coast Salish territories and remember that under the concrete and asphalt this land, is, was, and always will be Indigenous land. We aim to reflect this in our catalogue and programming.

The Vancouver Women’s Library exclusively carries writing by women authors in a broad array of genres. We encourage intergenerational conversations through the library and believe in continuing the legacy of women-run bookstores, presses and libraries.*
* this is a volunteer-managed space run by woman labour
* our catalogue is ever-expanding thanks to donations
* we welcome all self-identified women and girls

Bring them! We accept all titles authored by women. You’ll receive a free membership and hugs from our librarians.
