Booktopia, the West Vancouver Children's Literature Festival, is an annual festival intended to promote literacy, celebrate language arts and cultivate creative thought amongst youth and families in West Vancouver.

Held in early May, Booktopia offers a series of events for preschool, elementary and secondary school students at two venues: the Kay Meek Centre and the West Vancouver Memorial Library. Events include author visits, workshops, a youth art exhibit, a puppet show and more.
