Remembering the great Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) on his birthday #vplpicks #vancouverpubliclibrary #leonardcohen #bornonthisday #literarybirthdays
“Hey Jun/Yacht - a library card is the opposite of a credit card; the more you borrow, the better off you’ll be. 📚 Had a bit of a loaded day? Read a book to decompress. Bored watching congee cook? You know where to go... but best of all, you never know what’s waiting 🏃🏻‍♂️📕📗📘📙” - @the_junjun_lookbook #repost
