The Burrow is our programming room where we hold story times and other special activities for children. When it's not being used for a program, it's a quiet, sunny place for you to relax with a book, parents to feed their infants, or spend some quite time with their children. We have a literacy toy cupboard that has lots of fun and intersting activities for you to enjoy with your child.
Computers: We have one computer available for research 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 to help with homework and for reading online.
Outreach: When you are out and about in Whistler you may find the library in surprising places.The Youth Services staff have partnered with several community organizations to bring library services to children and teens outside the library's walls. Our book bike, BOB (Books on Bike) is a regular sight on the village stroll and in the plaza during the summer.
