Announcing the Vancouver Street Plaza

Welcome to the Lending Hub!

lending hub hours:

  • The lending hub is open everyday from: 11am to 7pm

  • Knitting Circle with Colleen: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-6pm. Join us for a free drop in knitting circle. Supplies and instruction provided for first time knitters.

  • Kids Building Block Festival: Saturday, October 2 from 1-4pm. Stop by the Vancouver Street Plaza for an afternoon of hands-on creativity! You will use your imagination to make towers, cities, buildings, and more with handmade wooden blocks and shapes.

The lending hub is a larger than life “little free library.” It is stocked with board games, chess & checker sets, puzzles, lawn games, art supplies, gardening tools, bicycle repair kits, a bike pump, and more! See the menu below.

When the lending hub is open you’re invited to borrow these items to use at the Plaza, at a nearby park, or at home!

To take the items home or to another park, you can sign items out for one week. If you’d like to use something at the plaza, just ask! No sign out required.


The North Park Neighbourhood Association (NPNA) is a non-profit society that plays an active role in improving the quality of life of our downtown neighbourhood. We receive funding support from the City of Victoria, and rely on our many wonderful volunteers to get the job done.
