Burlington Public Library - Aldershot
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.
Aldershot Branch, BPL’s first satellite location, opened on 29 September 1960. The branch relocated many times, most recently reopening on 01 December 2011 in a new facility shared with Halton Community Housing Corporation. It is the first BPL branch to open in a residential complex.
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.
