Yes, it is that time of year again! High school students are gearing up for exams. After a few unusual years of virtual and hybrid learning, many students are preparing for their first in-person exams, and we are here to support them.

Students are always welcome at our branches, but we have added a few special features to make studying a bit sweeter.

Study, Break, Repeat 

Exam Cram will run from Friday January 20th to Monday January 30th. Staff will be visiting students to hand out treats, and we will have a brain break station at each location where students can take a pause from studying and do a quiet activity.

Individual and group study spaces are available at all branches. We are also adding extra seating in our programming rooms and open spaces. If you need help finding a study spot, please ask a staff member. Our spaces are likely to be a bit busier and noisier than usual on these dates, and we appreciate everyone’s cooperation with this.

Destress With A Puppy Break 

St. John Ambulance therapy dogs be visiting our branches to help students minimize stress. These visits will take place in program rooms.

No need to register or call ahead—just drop in.

Online Study Help 

You can get FREE, virtual study help with your library card. Our Brainfuse HelpNow service offers live, virtual tutoring, as well as video tutorials, group study aids, essay review and more. You can use your library card number and PIN to login and create an account.

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.


A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
