It has been a busy year – for us all. We don’t always get a chance to keep up with all the goings on in our community or to know what happens behind the scenes. LynnValleyLife reached out to pretty much every local group we could track down and ask them to share their how the year went, what their hopes are for 2018 and how the Lynn Valley community can help them succeed. A few shared their thoughts. We have three posts coming up featuring the diversity of our community. We hope you enjoy this series of hopes and reflections.


A 10th Anniversary for the North Vancouver District Library Lynn Valley Branch


2017 Highlights 

The 2017 NVDPL board

2017 was a year of many great accomplishments for the North Vancouver District Public Library system. This year, the Library completed a beautiful renovation to the main lobby of the Lynn Valley Library, hosted over 2,100 programs, loaned over 1.1M items across our three locations, and celebrated the 10 year anniversary of Lynn Valley Library’s ‘new’ location.

2017 Challenges

The Library is a safe, neutral hub for lifelong learning and community connection. As such, an ongoing challenge is to find a balance and adapt to the varying needs of our community for study space, increased technology capability, and a robust collection.

2018 Goals

Our hope is to continue to demonstrate our commitment to the community, the wonderful programs and services we offer, and to welcome more residents.

Hopes for Lynn Valley

We hope that Lynn Valley retains its warm community feeling while embracing and welcoming new residents.

How can Lynn Valley help the Library?

North Vancouver residents have always been very supportive of library services and we appreciate that continued support. We encourage everyone to stop by and say “hello”!
