What to do in Vancouver: Five Events at the VPL

The Vancouver Public Library is an amazing community resource. Of course, everyone knows that you can borrow books at the library. Most moms also know about their fabulous family programs, like storytimes and reading clubs for kids. Fewer moms attend their free adult programs. If you’re wondering what to do in Vancouver to learn a new skill, connect with other people, or just get out of the house for a little bit of kid-free time, there’s lots to do at the library. And as an extra bonus, just like library memberships, almost all library events are free!
