Public Library Day at the Fair at the PNE

Burnaby Public Library is thrilled to participate in Public Library Day at the Fair at the PNE! Thanks to a partnership between the Fair and Public Library InterLINK, fair-goers can receive a discounted $5 gate admission to the Fair on Wednesday, August 23 by presenting a BC public library card. The Fair is free for children under the age of 13 from August 19 to September 4.

BPL will participate alongside other InterLINK member libraries in onsite activities from 11:00am through 9:00pm on Wednesday, August 23. Fair attendees can visit the Library Zone near Toon City and Gate 4 for lively activities or to take a break in the relaxation zone. Members of the Vancouver Canucks will be performing scheduled storytimes at the Toon City Stage and will sign autographs in the Library Zone afterwards. There will also be impromptu storytimes, maker activities, games, and more!

Presenting a BC public library card grants one cardholder admission for $5 (one card must be shown per person to receive the discount), and identification is recommended. For more information, chat with your local library or visit the the Fair Promo Days.
