Whistler Public Library

Attraction details
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Something a bit different from the normal 'touristy' and commercialized attractions in Whistler. Modern, well equipped, with computers for guest use. Great selection of books - worth joining the library even if you're only staying for a short while. Librarian Denusia wonderfully hospitable and helpful. We were even introduced to another librarian who was a winter para-Olympics gold medallist - she was the guide for a blind downhill skier - amazing listening to her story.

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

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.

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.
