What is an Imagination Playground?
An Imagination Playground is made up of large, modular blocks that kids can stack and move around, providing an endless variety of play patterns. Let your child's creativity shape the play. Have fun and practice co-ordination and balance while enjoying the ride-on cars, slides, and more!

What is a Pop-Up Library?
A Pop-Up Library is a small satellite library that Burnaby Public Library brings into the community. You can browse, borrow, and return library material, just like in a regular library! There will be books for all ages and you'll be able to learn about library services and register for a library card.
