Description: Vancouver Public Library's Central Branch maintains a collection of 1.4 million items and acts as a system-wide resource for 22 branch locations. A substantial amount of material is retained for reference only use in the Central library; this includes periodicals, newspapers and government documents.
The Special Collections department (reference only materials) maintains a very strong local history collection, in print and photos, as well as children's materials and rare books.
The Popular Reading Library, Multilingual services, and the Children's Library all have extensive circulating collections.
The level of non-fiction collections at Central support comprehensive, sustained independent study, undergraduate and graduate course work in some areas, and professional levels in some areas.
