Public Library Week
Libraries are special places—for everyone
Every year, during the third week of October, we celebrate the importance of public libraries and the people we serve.
Whether you come in or click on, every day Burlington Public Library touches the lives of thousands of people—
Take a course, meet an author, visit with friends.
Do your homework, learn a song, watch a film.
Surf online or browse unplugged.
Sit and think (or just sit).
Write The Great Canadian Novel, or simply borrow one.
Explore limitless possibilities at your public library—and come celebrate with us!
Along with a week full of activities is our annual
Food For Fines event at all locations -
Monday through Sunday during Ontario Public Library Week
Help yourself and the community by paying your overdue fines with unexpired canned and dry food items to benefit Burlington Food Share. One food item equals $1 in fines, two items equal $2, up to a maximum of $10 per person.
