What We Do

Inspire wonder – The library becomes a different place depending on the needs and identities of the people who use it. With this in mind, our vision and purpose recognize that the library can impact people’s sense of belonging in our community, contribute to economic vitality, or simply provide an escape and refuge from everyday stresses.

The Friends of the Library fundraise to support programs from books for babies, to games & movie nights, bike maintenance sessions, travel-logs & language classes and the cutting edge WonderLab for all age groups.

Why and How You Can Support Us

The Whistler Public Library is an integral part of our healthy community. Programming has had to change and adapt due to the pandemic. Providing our patrons access to the many programs and extra resources still requires financial assistance. Normally, the majority of our funding is raised through some annual events that are not possible due to Covid 19 restrictions.

We are launching our very first online 50/50 draw! We hope that you are able to support us by participating and/or sharing the word to help us build a sweet jackpot.
