Welcome Brantford PL to CULC/CBUC

Welcome to Rae-Lynne Aramburo, CEO & Chief Librarian of Brantford Public Library, the newest member of CULC/CBUC.

Brantford Public Library serves the growing city of Brantford, situated on the Grand River in southern Ontario, neighbouring Canada’s largest First Nations reserve (Six Nations of the Grand River). The city is also known as the home of legendary hockey player, Wayne Gretzky, and nicknamed “Telephone City,” as the birthplace of Alexander Graham Bell’s invention.

The Brantford Public Library has two branches to serve its population of approximately 105,000 residents. Increasing service locations to provide more convenient access to Library resources is a current priority, and we are thrilled that a decade-long project to introduce a third branch is now coming to fruition. Brantford Public Library has a long-standing, unique partnership with Wilfrid Laurier University, hosting the local campus’s physical library collection.
