A great library. A beautiful building and the staff are phenomenal. The only area of improvement our family would like to see is some fresh French books for children. Our children are growing up bilingual (as are many in Whistler), and we have read the bulk of the relatively small French children’s books.

Being tired of watching Netflix every night, I decided to go rent a library book. I haven’t rented a book in years…as in elementary school, 30 years ago? I couldn’t remember the last book I rented to “read” that wasn’t for studying or furthering my Degree/Post Degree/Career advancement. I had no idea where to start. I actually ended up in the children section from one of my web searches and that’s when someone came by and asked me “can I help you find something?” Completely embarrassed, “I said I don’t know what I’m looking for, but I would like a book to read. It can’t be too “explicit” or too “scary”.” She patiently asked what I liked in general, and she ended up offering me two books from “historical fiction” I had not heard of historical fiction before. I read the first book in its entirety and was thrilled to be able to return it – I felt as if I accomplished a small feat. The staff are very helpful and kind, and can help you find a book to read even if you haven’t read a book in 30 years.

Response from Whistler Library

Wow – this is music to our years! Welcome (back) to the library. Don’t be a stranger – we have lots more historical fiction for you!

The staff at WPL are always more than happy to provide knowledgeable assistance. I have been particularly impressed with their ability to quickly bring in books from outside the library (if a copy isn’t currently available for loan).

I like the place because of its facility, location of the library and its a really good place to study with the nice view outside. And the staffs are really kind

Response from Whistler Library

We’re so glad you love our building and location – we agree, the view out onto Florence Petersen Park is lovely!

Love story time for the infant’s and everything you do for the kids, but some of the timing clashes with other toddler events (IDP, CCRR) in town and the limited opening hours of the pool.
Would it be possible to move the Tues or Thurs story time to a Wednesday?
Wednesday currently doesn’t have much happening for under 3 yr olds in town and the crafts are a bit advanced for them.

Response from Whistler Library

Thank you for passing this feedback along! We will take it into consideration in planning for early years programs.
