Borrow physical items:

If you’d like to borrow physical items while in isolation, there are two options: you can arrange for a friend who is not in your household to pick up your items, or we can arrange for a home delivery. To explore these options, contact us at publicservices@whistlerlibrary.ca.

Board games: 

Did you know that you can borrow board games from the library? We’ve got games for all ages that you and your household can enjoy while isolating.
