Vaughan Public Libraries respectfully acknowledges that our libraries were built upon the Territory and Treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation per the Toronto Purchase agreement or Treaty 13.
We also recognize we are situated in the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and the Haudenosaunee who occupied this land before the arrival of European settlers.
The City of Vaughan is currently home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis people. We acknowledge their contributions to the life and prosperity of this land.
As representatives of the people of the City of Vaughan, we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and live in this territory.

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!
