VPL 2020 Strategic Plan
WELCOME FROM THE MAYOR
Gregor Robertson Mayor of Vancouver The Vancouver Public Library plays a vital role in ensuring every resident has free access to ideas and information, helping to make Vancouver a more connected, creative, and innovative city. Whether it’s an aspiring musician recording an original track in VPL’s Inspiration Lab, Indigenous storytellers sharing their culture here on their unceded territory, or a child reading their sixth bedtime story of the evening with their dad, the library ensures that everyone in our city has access to the resources they need to grow and thrive. As one of Vancouver’s oldest institutions, the Vancouver Public Library has long been a cornerstone of our communities. Now, Vancouver is changing and our library is changing too. I’m excited about the future direction outlined in this strategic plan, and would like to thank the thousands of residents
who contributed to it. Together, we’re re-inventing our library for the future.
