Oh no! The library closed and you and your family are stuck inside! Use your mystery-solving skills in our library escape room! Back by popular demand, we are repeating this event from the previous week.

Sign up as a group (up to 10 people) or just your family (we might pair you up with another trapped family). Work your way through the closed library using book knowledge, library skills and puzzle logic to escape.

For families with children 8+ years old; enthusiastic younger siblings are welcome but keep in mind the puzzles will be challenging.

Registration required - in person at the Cameron Branch or call 604-421-5454.

Join Burnaby Public Library for a screening of Suffragette (2015).

Inspired by true events, a moving drama exploring the passion and heartbreak of the women who risked everything in their fight for equality in early 20th century Britain. The story centers on Maud, a working wife and mother whose life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.'s growing suffragette movement. Galvanized by the outlaw fugitive Emmeline Pankhurst, Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside women from all walks of life.

This film is rated PG (Consumer Protection BC) for violence, coarse language, and scenes of nudity. It has a runtime of 1 hour and 46 minutes.

Drop in, no registration required.
