VANCOUVER WOULD BE COOLER IF #186: There Were Open Air Libraries In Its Parks

(via) These shots were taken in a vineyard in Ghent, Belgium. It’s an open air library/art installation raising funds for the local libraries that have fed its many shelves. Would it work in Vancouver? Well, Ghent only gets 2 inches of rainfall fewer than we do per annum (45 inches), and the installation only lasts until September 16th. So, sure it would, and if not Vancouver, why not Kelowna? Your move, Mission Hill.
