Photographer FrankBe sure to check out the Museum & Archives' changing displays on the third floor of the library. The current display asks viewers which one of two objects they would choose to keep in our artifact collection. North Vancouver’s Museum wants to have the best artifact collection possible, so we’re sorting through what to keep and what to let go. We want to know what questions you would ask to make the decision.

Check out the objects at the City ‘s Public Library or on NVMA’s social media pages and let us know what you think at Facebook. Or on Twitter with #WhichWouldYouKeep. Or feel free to send us an email at

It was an effort which required brute strength, ingenuity, daring, and which cost many lives. This display may also be seen online.
