Join us in The Burrow, our programming room where we hold story times and other special activities for children. When it's not being used for a program, please enjoy some time with your child and explore the literacy toy cupboard's puzzels, blocks, puppets and more.

Computers: We have one computer available and an AWE learning computer that has literacy and numeracy games as well as skill based games on many topics including, typing, science and nature. The library's catalogue and databases are also available on a varity of computers.

Outreach: When you are out and about in Whistler you may find the library in surprising places. Our book bike, BOB (Books on Bike) is a regular sight on the village stroll and in the plaza during the spring,summer and fall. Stop by and say hi, listen to a story or find out more about our library's programs and services. Check out Shaw TV's story about outreach with BOB
