Visiting Bob Prittie Metrotown During Renovations

Posted on: November 7, 2022

Bob Pritte Metrotown is under construction – excuse our appearance! The branch is open with regular hours during renovations.

Browsing, computers, printing, indoor seating and other in-person services are available. When you arrive, parts of the building will look a little different:

  • There is one temporary entrance and exit, through the holds pickup room next to the Civic Square entrance. The main library entrances at Civic Square, Willingdon Avenue, and lobby access from underground parking are closed throughout the renovation.
  • Temporary washrooms are available outside the library, on the surface parking lot of Civic Square. There is no washroom access inside the library during renovations.
  • There is no water fountain or potable water source inside the library during this phase of renovations.
  • Returns can only be accepted during regular hours. Drop off items at our holds pickup room next to the Civic Square entrance. All external library returns at this location are closed throughout construction. You can return items at other BPL locations using the external library return, open 24 hours. BPL items can also be returned at other InterLINK libraries throughout Metro Vancouver.

Please note that some areas of the building are inaccessible and there may be intermittent noise due to construction.
