North and West Vancouver, BC—North Vancouver City Library, North Vancouver District Public Library, and West Vancouver Memorial Library are thrilled to participate in Public Library Day at the Fair at the PNE. Thanks to a partnership between the Fair and Public Library InterLINK, fair-goers can receive a discounted $5 gate admission to the Fair on Wednesday, August 23 by presenting a BC Library card! The Fair is free for children under the age of 13 from August 19-September 4.
“Like the Fair, our public libraries are a favourite place for families to visit, and an essential part of summer in BC,” says Public Library InterLINK Executive Director Michael Burris. “Library Day at the Fair at the PNE provides an opportunity to highlight some of the fun activities that families can expect when they visit their local library; from storytime to makerspaces, there is something for all ages.”
The North Shore libraries will participate alongside InterLINK member libraries in onsite activities from 11:00am thru 9:00pm on Wednesday, August 23. Fair attendees can stopover in the library zone near Toon City and Gate 4 for lively activities, or simply, to take a break in the relaxation zone. Members of the Vancouver Canucks will be performing scheduled storytimes with the Raise a Reader program at the Toon City Stage and after, will sign autographs in the Library Zone. There will also be impromptu storytimes, maker activities, games, and more!
Presenting a BC library card grants one cardholder admission for $5 (one card must be shown per person to receive the discount) and ID is recommended. For more information, chat with your local library or https://www.pne.ca/thefair/ways-to-save/.
