Founded in 1986, the Whistler Public Library, also known as Whistler’s Living Room, is housed in an environmentally efficient, award-winning building in the heart of Whistler Village. Visit the library's website at whistlerlibrary.ca.
The library provides access to a collection of over 49,000 items, including a hand-picked selection of best-selling and classic fiction, current and diverse non-fiction materials, and a robust movie collection. The library also offers audiobooks, video games and a newsstand-quality selection of magazines. For the curious researcher, the library has over 25 online databases.
We are monitoring the situation with COVID-19 in BC and will continue to adapt services based upon recommendations from the provincial health authorities, our Board, and local government. The library may be different for the time being, but we want you to know we are looking forward to seeing you and helping to meet your library needs. Visit whistlerlibrary.ca/visit-us for full details about the services we're currently offering.
