• Our Library Facilities Master Planning Had Begun. Click here to have your say.
    Facilities Master Plan

    Brampton Library has initiated an exciting new 10-year Master Plan to determine library space needs and designs that will best serve the needs of Brampton residents. Known as the Facilities Master Plan, it will guide how the City of Brampton and Brampton Library invest in existing and future library branches to inspire connections in our community.

    Now is the Time to Have Your Say

    Whether you are a regular or occasional library user, or even if you haven’t had a chance to visit us recently, we want to hear from you. We want to know about the things that draw you to the Library and ways that our branches can be improved. 

    1. Click here to complete our Community Survey (it should take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete). If you choose to provide your email address at the end of the survey, you will be entered into a draw to win one of two iPad tablets. The survey will be open until Friday April 30, 2021. If you prefer to complete a paper copy of the survey, please contact Michael Georgie (mgeorgie@bramlib.on.ca or 905.793.4636 ext. 74363)
    2. Submit written comments to Brampton Library by e-mail to FMP@bramlib.on.ca.   

    Opportunities for public feedback will also be provided near the end of the planning process as we present the draft Facilities Master Plan. Stay tuned for updates!

    Thank you to the City of Brampton, Groundwood Books, Penguin Random House and Groupe d’édition la courte échelle for their support.

    We would like to acknowledge the Story Walks are held on the Treaty Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and before them, the traditional territory of the Haudenosaune, Huron and Wendat. We also acknowledge the many First Nations, Metis, Inuit and other global Indigenous people that now call Brampton their home. We are honoured to live, work and enjoy this land.
