Reading Lights

Reading Lights celebrates the work of B.C. children’s book authors and illustrators and offers unexpected encounters with an array of stories for children and their families near parks, playgrounds, schools and libraries throughout Vancouver.

Intended to spark an interest in stories and reading, the program features excerpts of books and illustrations on lamp posts across the city for all to enjoy.

Twenty Reading Lights plaques were installed in January 2016, and 20 additional plaques were added in 2017.

Reading Lights is a collaborative project of Vancouver Public Library and the Children’s Writers and Illustrators of B.C. Society.

Explore this interactive map and discover more about these exceptional children’s books and the authors and illustrators who bring them to life.

You can also download and print this Reading Lights Map to take along while you explore!
