book’mark is back!

book’mark will reopen on July 14! Find out how we are keeping you safe in this post.

Our volunteers are excited to see you at book’mark. We’ve taken a number of steps to keep you safe including:

  • Installing plexiglass barriers
  • Rearranging the store and adding arrows on the ground
  • Limiting the store’s occupancy to 15 people

We are also providing a personal shopping service! Contact book’mark at 604-331-4040 or Pick up when you pay!

Please help us keep book’mark safe for all our volunteers and visitors by:

  • Staying home if you feel sick
  • Wearing a mask
  • Keeping 2 meters apart from others in the store
  • Keeping book donations at home (the book donation program is on hold for now)
  • Listening to directions from our volunteers

Above all, please follow Dr. Bonnie Henry’s mantra:  Be kind, be calm, and be safe.

The reopening of book’mark is happening as the VPL begins the reopening of some its branches, however, Friends of the Vancouver Public Library is an independent non-profit organization. If you are interested in learning more about the VPL’s phased reopening plan, please follow this link.
