We enjoyed visiting the library. It was clean, spacious and modern with tall ceiling. The librarian introduced us to the available services and answered our questions. A great place to lounge about with a book, or use the computer.

Went to a food fair and celebration here. Easy to find. Outside plaza is where the food booths were, and live music was playing inside. We had a fun time!

A beautiful, clean, well stocked, well run, quiet and inviting library. They even have a little self serve coffee shop inside - cute! I told the head librarian how impressed I was. She told me that I could have applied for a visitor library card to borrow material while I was in town. Next time!

The building is wonderful and so is the collection. What is really amazing are the various reading nooks that are full! Lots of places for kids to hide in quiet and even a teen room for the laptops! Good active reading program for younger kids. Nice restful place for that tired muscle day or rainy winey kid day.

This is a small resort museum which I thought gave a good brief history of how Whistler was born and of the resorts short history. Well worth a visit on a wet and Rainey day!

I finally went inside after many years at Whistler on vacation- i should have done this sooner. Great selection of materials and media and nice place to hangout on an off day from skiing- there's a inviting fireplace inside to cozy up with a book.

I went here on my last day as I had several hours to kill. The staff are helpful, they have a fireplace seating area with power for your phone or laptop. Free Wi-Fi like everywhere in Whistler. Toilets inside and i think I saw a place to get drinks. There is also a creche or kids play area. The opposite... More

This is one of the most fabulous libraries I've ever seen. The staff are amazing and so helpful - they clearly love their jobs. The building itself is gorgeous with floor to ceiling windows, comfortable seating areas, perfect place to while away some snowy afternoon hours away from the crowds and skiers. Great children's collection, large selection of movies and... More

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!
