Important change

We no longer offer a walk-in library service. However, we still offer full library services.

If you need help with your library inquiries, please contact or call 604.736.7331 ext. 119.​

The Helen Randal Library is Canada’s largest full-service specialty nursing practice library. Library staff are available Monday through Friday during business hours, excluding statutory holidays, to provide library services via phone or email.
