We will be hosting our second annual Truth & Reconciliation Book Giveaway on Wednesday, September 14 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (or while supplies last). We’ve decided to host the giveaway ahead of our closure on September 30, so that community members can spend the day in reflection with their new book.

Thanks to Law Matters for supporting this initiative.

Whistler Public Library will be closed on Friday, September 30 for the National Day for Truth & Reconciliation (also known as Orange Shirt Day).

The event is finished.
