Whistler Public Library

Whistler Public Library

The Whistler Public Library is a work of art itself, and with an impressive list of architectural awards we’re not the only ones who think so. A dramatic mix of hemlock and stone, this building was designed with an active community in mind.

This contemporary library embraces learning for the 21st century. In addition to visitors and locals enjoying an impressive book collection, Whistler’s library offers a host of digital assets and a packed event schedule including a speaker series, film and games nights, book and astronomy clubs, plus a whole schedule of family and children-focused activities.

Did You Know?

The Whistler Public Library was the first LEED Gold certified library in Canada, and Canadian Geographic Magazine ranked it as one of their “Top 10 Most Beautiful Canadian Libraries”. It was also the Whistler Canada Olympic House during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

Our Tips:

If you’re looking for a more unusual evening activity then take a look at their online events calendar because it’s packed with things to do. One of our favourites? The Whistler Astronomy Seminars – you can brush up on your constellations before taking advantage of Whistler’s low light pollution to do some star gazing! For families with little ones check out the children’s area called “The Burrow”. You can explore the literacy toy box, eat snacks, and share some books – it’s a great spot on a rainy day.

“The Whistler Public Library is definitely not your grandma’s library: there is no one constantly telling patrons “shhhh!”, and it’s a lot more than just books. The Library is vibrant and forward thinking. I appreciate how friendly and easy going the staff is, the quality and variety of programs that are available (especially the TEDx talks), and the winter fireplace and comfy chairs that make it very welcoming,” Whistler resident, Chris Vander Pyl.
