Please keep yourself safe and healthy and ensure others can too.

Be kind and curious and keep joy in your hearts. We are thinking of you,

The Learnary is a non-profit shop at 2643 East Hastings that sells resources for the curious - including home learners, unschoolers, lifelong learners and teachers of all kinds. We stock curiosity maker kits, books, games and things that make you go oh!…for all ages and stages.  You can visit us in person or at our on-line shop.  

The Vancouver Learnary Society is dedicated to building community, supporting intergenerational learning and generating curiosity.

We operate The Learnary Shop and host learning events on line, in our storefront, and around town. 

When we say, we can’t do this without you, we really mean…we can’t do this without you! As a non-profit society, we depend on our members to help us grow and sustain our work. You are The Learnary.
