Whistler Public Library
- Type: Sightseeing
|About these ratings|
Fashioned like a wilderness mountain lodge, the Whistler Public Library building fits in perfectly in this ski town. The 15,000-square-foot library sits between the largest park in Whistler Village and the town's popular pedestrian walkway, the Village Stroll. The library houses more than 49,000 items ranging from classic fiction and non-fiction works and best-selling books to audiobooks and movies. The venue welcomes more than 700 visitors a day thanks to its location and availability to permanent and seasonal residents and Whistler visitors. Its Reading Room floods with sunlight and offers ample space to cozy up with a good book. The Whistler library also plays host to a slew of events, such as film screenings, toddler story time, guest lectures and writing workshops.
Recent visitors also rave about the varied materials and amenities available as well as the helpful staff: "There is a living room space — fireplace, coffee machine and armchairs — so great to relax in with big windows looking out at nature," said one TripAdvisor user, who also noted that the employees "are the friendliest people in Whistler."
The Whistler Public Library is situated in downtown Whistler, just around the corner from the Whistler Museum. It's open Monday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information on events, programs and works available, visit the Whistler Public Library website.
