La Biblioteca - Library

Our library houses one of the largest collections of Italian materials in the Lower Mainland. We provide our members with incredibly diverse literary, audio and video materials in the Italian language, with a focus on Italian fiction books and DVDs. In addition, we offer the beautifully designed “Angolo dei Bimbi” (Kids’ Corner), where children can get involved in fun, educational activities, and enjoy the Saturday morning Italian story time sessions called Filastrocche. Our English language section includes translated Italian works and books about Italians in Vancouver and in Canada at large. 

In order to check out materials, you must purchase a membership from the Italian Cultural Centre.
