What is a Resource Library?

Vaughan Public Libraries has three resource libraries: Bathurst Clark, Civic Centre and Pierre Berton. Our three resource libraries help support Vaughan’s three main geographic areas: Thornhill, Maple, and Woodbridge.

Our resource libraries are prominent VPL locations that offer comprehensive collections, ample study space, Creation Spaces to explore all things STEAM, and dynamic areas for children and teens to learn and play.

Resource libraries have programs for children, teens, adults and families. However, due to their size, resource libraries will often host larger-scale events like FanCon, the Mindfulness Fair, and the Harry Potter Murder Mystery event. Resource libraries serve various customers with varying needs – there’s something for everyone!
