Dawn Ibey

Director, Library Experience,
Vancouver Public Library
Vancouver, BC, Canada
Dawn Ibey joined the Vancouver Public Library in 1993, holding various positions before joining the management team in 2007. In 2012 she was the project manager for the information services review in which she successfully transformed the Central Library’s information services from a multi-department subject based model to a fully integrated, centralized service. In her current role as Director, Library Experience, her portfolio includes Information Services, Programming and Learning, Circulation Services and Exhibits and Partnerships. Dawn is currently working on the expansion of Vancouver’s Central Library, renovating the building’s top two floors to include a theatre, a reading room, new community event and meeting space, exhibit spaces, and a ‘garden in the sky’ public garden, among other enhancements. Once complete the project will expand the library by 35,000 square feet and transform Levels 8 and 9 of the building – floors that were previously leased out – into a vibrant public performance, learning and gathering space.
