Burnaby Public Library empowers the community to engage with and share stories, ideas and information. Our vision is a welcoming community where all people can explore, learn and connect.

BPL’s four branches are important public spaces, meeting places and centres for discovery and dialogue, anchored by our broad and deep collections and our commitment to in-person service. BPL is changing to continue to meet the needs of our highly diverse community, with an increased emphasis on community development approaches and connecting with people outside the library, a greater focus on digital literacy and access, plans to upgrade and rethink library spaces, and a commitment to social justice and inclusive and equitable service.
