CULTURE & RECREATION PASSES

Libraries of the 21st century offer unique experiences that support lifelong learning.

In partnership with local organizations, we are pleased to offer GVPL cardholders the opportunity to enrich mind and body with hands-on experiences at cultural institutions and recreational centres.

These passes are very popular! Thank you for your patience as you wait for your turn.
