“Great little find”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Fantastic childrens area. The book selection itself is quite small but they do have table areas and the staff are very nice and helpful. You can use the library online catalogue to try find books, but they are clearly marked out.
Doesn't seem to be any university/student books though, and it doesn't open until 11am

“Great local library”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

If you have time when you are in Whistler, drop into the local library and ask to be pointed to some books by local authors. It is located very centrally in town, and benefits from the generous budgets much of Whistler's infrastructure was built with. It is fun to do some 'normal' things in a resort town, to move with the local folks.

“It's a nice place but the opening hours are hilariously short.”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

A nice place to relax, there is a fireplace and coffee machine and a huge selection of magazines as well as books. The only downside, though huge, is that it is open such a short amount of time during the week. Such a shame for such a beautiful and well used place.
