Burlington Public Library - New Appleby
Burlington Public Library is a large urban Canadian library system with seven locations citywide: six full-service branches (Aldershot, Alton, Brant Hills, Central, New Appleby, Tansley Woods) and a small lending collection serving the rural hamlet of Kilbride.
The Library belongs to everyone in the community and is free to join if you live, work, or go to school in Halton Region. Every person, regardless of differences, has access to a vast array of resources onsite and online, services, and programs for all ages within a safe and welcoming environment. It is a popular local gathering place and a portal to the global community through the Internet.
New Appleby Branch opened in Appleview Plaza on October 20, 1983, having served the local neighbourhoods first as Skyway Branch (1965), and New Appleby Branch in Appleby Mall (1972).
A City-appointed citizen Board governs the Library, with a Chief Executive Officer responsible for overseeing its operations. Brian Kenny is the current Library Board Chair and Lita Barrie is the CEO. Burlington Public Library is a tax-supported registered charitable organization.
