Welcome to the Harry Lash Library Catalogue

The Harry Lash Library supports the work of Metro Vancouver by coordinating and providing access to key information sources, including our own internally-produced reports. We lend to Metro Vancouver staff, consultants, and member municipal staff. Members of the public may use library resources on-site, and/or request electronic copies of reports where available. Our collection includes historical materials that trace the development of Metro Vancouver.
