The Burlington Public Library, which operates seven branches throughout the city, recently earned two accolades. 

Today (May 16), the library system announced it’s a finalist for the Burlington Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards in the not-for-profit category. 

“We are so honoured to be recognized by the Chamber as an outstanding not-for-profit,” said BPL CEO Lita Barrie in a statement. 

“Burlington has an exceptional business community, and we are proud to be named among such incredible local businesses.”

Award winners will be announced at an awards gala on May 23.

The Library was also recently named one of Canada’s Best Workplaces for Giving Back by Great Place to Work, an organization that specializes in workplace culture assessments. 

According to the Library, the designation is awarded to businesses that achieve a minimum 90 per cent employee sentiment score regarding the workplace’s contribution to the community.

Burlington Public Library employs over 150 people and provides access to a collection of more than 240,000 physical items.

It also offers free programs to people of all ages.
