Burnaby Festival of Learning

BPL is out in your community!  We'll be hosting a Pop-Up Library at the Rhododendron Festival, located at Shadbolt Centre of the Arts (6450 Deer Lake Avenue).  'Rhodofest' is the City of Burnaby's annual, family-friendly festival with exhibitors, entertainment, nature tours, and activities for children!  It is also the kick-off event to the Burnaby Festival of Learning!

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!
