We have been using the library in Whistler since it was the small mobile home. The current, beautiful library is wonderful--one of our favorites anywhere. The staff are helpful and friendly. The selections is quite good given the size and nature of this resort town. A gem!

So we didn't really expect that the public library in Whistler would be one of the better community libraries we've ever visited, but prepared to be surprised by this one. Lovely architecture, a central location, exceedingly helpful staff, a super collection, and an impressive list of periodical and newspaper subscriptions adds up to a first-rate library. If we want a... More

Great selection of books and other materials, free wifi. Nice place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Whistler, a gentle haven.

This library is staffed by the most respectful and service oriented teams you could wish for. Nothing is too much trouble for this team. It's a library but it's also a sanctuary from the hoi polloi who strut the streets of this village at Christmas along with all of the ordinary rank and file skiers. It's got a great selection...

I was happily surprised to learn that my Vancouver Public Library card could be used to borrow books here and I could return the Whistler books to a VPL branch and they would be returned! AMAZING SERVICE. And Whistler has WAY, WAY more books than my local VPL branch, which has very few adult books these days.

Whistler is a great destination for all kinds of activities all year round: skiing, biking, golfing, hiking, snow shoeing, back country launching point, canoeing. There are also plenty of things to do between activities and don't forget about the local library. Not just books, but also music, videos, newspapers and other media. Centrally located I like to go here just... More

I took my 15-month old to the library last week on a cold and rainy morning. We were very happy to find a wonderful children's section and very friendly librarians. And best of all, we were there in time for a Halloween themed story hour. This was one of the best story hours I have ever attended. All children were... More

Thankfully we were vacationing with owners of a timeshare, so were able to check out items. It was right across the street from our condo. Very clean, modern. Had a free movie night, however we didn't attend that.

I love this library. It is small, but I can always find something to read in the "staff picks". The staff are very friendly. The kid section has comfy chairs and it nestled away in the back. The kids books are well displayed. There is a great selection of DVDs in the front. Being from Vancouver, I am able to... More

Visited the Whistler Public Library - the Librarians were friendly and resourceful. Many activities were also conducted especially for children. Book collections and the infrastructure were sufficient to fulfill our needs. Very nice ambience, great work stations and space.
