    I am pleased to share that we are preparing to introduce a contactless curbside pickup service at select Brampton Library locations. We look forward to adding this service enhancement as soon as it is possible to do so safely, while our branches remain closed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

    As we prepare for the introduction of curbside service, in consultation with the City of Brampton and Peel Public Health, the health and safety of our staff and customers is our top priority. While we are not yet able to announce when our contactless curbside pickup service will start, we will continue to provide updates here on our website, via social media and through email updates.

    In the initial stage of this service, we will be offering pickup of materials that you reserved by placing them on hold prior to our closure on March 16. If you have reserved items, staff will contact you by phone to arrange the pickup date, time and location for these items. Thank you for your patience, as this process will take some time. 

    As always, I invite you to explore our Digital Library, for all the latest eBooks and eAudioBooks, eLearning, streaming music, movies, tv, and much more.

    Let’s stay connected here on our blog and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. To reach out to me directly, email chieflib@bramlib.on.ca and to subscribe to our email updates, click here. For the latest information about COVID-19, click here.

    Curbside Coming Soon

    On Wednesday, June 24 Mayor Brown announced some reopenings in Brampton, including our plan to launch contactless Curbside Pickup of Library materials. Please know that our phased return to full service emphasizes the safety of our staff and customers as our highest priority. Our library branches will remain closed to the public until further notice.

    Next week, our staff who have been working remotely will return to work on site, to prepare to launch our contactless Curbside Pickup service at select Library locations.  They will be contacting customers about items placed on hold prior to our closure. On behalf of Brampton Library board members and staff, we can’t wait to offer phased library service, safely. 

    For all the latest eBooks and eAudioBooks, eLearning, streaming music, movies, television, and much more, head to our Digital Library.

What is the goal of Brampton Library Community Galleries?🔽

Brampton Library provides occasional exhibit space to individuals or groups wishing to display hanging works of art. This free exhibit space enables Library visitors to participate in the creative life of the community, and presents artists with a valued avenue for exhibiting their work.

Who can apply?🔽

Exhibits from Brampton and area artists and groups are preferred but others will also be considered in the application process.

How can I apply? 🔽

Artists are asked to fill out the Community Galleries Application Form and include a description of the exhibit, an artist biography and sample images of your work. Please select your preferred branch. You will be contacted about your submission.

What are the artist’s responsibilities? 🔽

The Library does not pay exhibit fees. Exhibitors are responsible for obtaining their own damage insurance for the contents of their exhibit.

The artist must sign the Release and Waiver of Liability form.

The artist is responsible for the installation and deinstallation of the artwork at their own risk and expense.

Artwork must remain up for the entirety of the exhibition.

What criteria are used for selecting exhibits?🔽

Exhibited materials should be indicative of Brampton Library’s mission and values as well as the diverse interests of the community and should be suitable for showing in a public library (i.e. extremely erotic or gratuitously violent, overtly political or sensitive are not acceptable)  keeping in mind that the library is a public place and that those visiting are not necessarily aware of the art display before entering.

The Brampton Library reserves the right to refuse to display any items considered to be inappropriate and/or unsuitable in a library setting.

Artwork should be ready for hanging.

How long is artwork displayed🔽

Exhibits will be for a period of one month at the discretion of the library.

Permission for an individual or group to exhibit is generally for a single occurrence and does not imply the right to repeat exhibits.

Can I sell my artwork at the library?🔽

Artists are able to leave a pricelist at the information desk or supply a sign listing a contact person, website address and telephone number where visitors can inquire about purchasing information. Prices may not be attached to individual works.
