Who We Are
Burnaby Public Library provides access to a rich array of the world’s stories, ideas and information. Our vision is a vibrant community where all people are informed, literate and entertained. The Library is guided and governed by the Burnaby Public Library Board, made up of nine trustees: eight citizen representatives appointed by City Council and one Councillor acting as liaison.
What We Do
Burnaby Public Library provides residents with a wide selection of stories, ideas and information. From book recommendations to in-depth research questions, help from library staff is available in person, by phone, and by email. The library also offers a wide range of programs for children and families, teens, adults, seniors and newcomers to our community.
In 2015, the library loaned 3.1 million items to residents and had 4.8 million virtual and in-person visits to the four branches. Borrowing downloadable e-books and audiobooks increased by 19.6%. Burnaby Public Library hosted 1,817 programs which were attended by 65,233 members of the community. Nearly 5,000 people visit Burnaby Public Library every day.
