Brampton Library provides a range of services to meet the needs of people within the community who speak many different languages and come from varied cultural backgrounds. The Library responds to and supports the educational, informational and inspirational needs and interests of an increasingly multicultural population.

Brampton Library recognizes special multicultural celebrations and events.  In-branch and online displays, as well as themed programming, are among the ways the Library celebrates these occasions and helps to inform our entire community about Brampton's rich and diverse cultural heritage.
