About

Every community is the sum of its stories and memories.

Vancouver Public Library is committed to connecting people with each other and their city, and to preserving our local history. This Vancouver allows you to experience the stories of Vancouverites and the history of Vancouver communities through images, audio clips, and videos. Many of the collections are the result of VPL collaborating with community members on community-based digital projects.

This is a living collection and new items will continue to be added, so please check back regularly.

VPL can also help you create your digital story. The Inspiration Lab at the Central Library is dedicated to digital creativity, collaboration and storytelling featuring high-performance computers, analog-to-digital conversion, sound studios, self-publishing and editing software, as well as a variety of learning opportunities.
