Here’s how things look from the Vancouver Public Library’s new rooftop garden (PHOTOS)


The Vancouver Public Library’s Central Branch recently opened up their long-anticipated rooftop garden and reading space to the public, and the views are pretty spectacular.

The rooftop includes some green features, like planters and trees, but is largely an open space for relaxing, visiting with friends, and, of course, reading. Fall is looking quite gorgeous from up there, as is beautiful Vancouver, thanks to some pretty epic city views.


In case you haven’t made it up there yet, here are some photos shared on Instagram showing off one of Vancouver’s nicest new assets.
