The Vancouver Learnary Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to intergenerational learning. We operate a social enterprise called The Learnary, which is a store, and we hope to soon be offering learning opportunities in the space too.
We opened our shop at 2643 East Hastings in September 2018. We're loving our neighbourhood of Hastings Sunrise - it's a great stretch of small businesses and residents passionate about their community. Just our kind of people!
We are open from 11:00am to 6:00pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
Our shop is dedicated to lifelong learning and curiosity. We stock books, games, maker kits and curiosities that will inspire, educate and strengthen your connection to a deeper community.
In addition to being a conventional store, we are building an intergenerational learning space. We hope to offer classes for folks to explore what we stock in store and learn together.
Each workshop or drop-in will be priced separately and you can find more information when you check our current listings. There will also be member pricing on our workshops - which means that if you become a member, you get a discount on classes. Stay tuned for more information soon!
