Pop up in the park BPL is out in your community!  We're hosting a Pop-Up Library at David Gray Park (McKay and Inman).  Burnaby Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services' playground leaders will also be on hand bringing fun activities to kids and their parents. 

A Pop-Up Library is a small, satellite library where visitors can browse, borrow, and return library material.  We'll have books for all ages and you'll be able to learn about library services and register for a library card!
