    A Vision for the Future of Public Libraries

The Whitehots Story

The future of public libraries in Canada is an exciting universe where traditional books and innovative digital media meet. Whitehots is an enthusiastic partner for libraries and publishers alike, and we’re dedicated to exploring and advancing these new frontiers to help Canadian libraries realize new heights of success.

Whitehots understands established library processes with over 25 years of experience and relationship building as a library vendor tailored to our industry. Today, we regularly visit libraries across Canada, which places us in the unique position of being able to participate in diverse innovations and success stories. The improvements we make to our services are often a direct result of feedback from libraries and their staff.

The insights we create with librarians and publishers allow us to share information and ideas, thus providing so much more than books to the libraries with which we work. There are many helpful roles we can fill, from simplifying book ordering and allocation to consultation and innovation to help your library build collections that engage patrons and increase circulation.

Learn more about our unique library services:


The Whitehots Hub – get to know our comprehensive online system for ordering and allocating books, and easily building selection lists.






Intelligent Library Solutions – we can help solve your challenges with collection assessment and development, cataloguing and processing, helpful Hotlist selection lists, and innovative programs like our Patron Driven Acquisitions online system.





21st Century Library Program – we’re growing our potential to help you grow yours with services such as collection assessments, aggregating multilingual cataloguing data, partnering on marketing innovations, helping to increase circulations, and other consultative innovations.





Schools – our programs and partnerships benefit schools, their libraries, and their students. We are passionate about the importance of early literacy, and advocate this critical societal issue at every opportunity.





Whitehots began with the vision of two people, Sharon and Russ Culver, and now we’re a growing team of 60 people. We also acquired S&B Books in July 2012 to expand our education division. A client of ours once told us we are a Canadian success story. The best part of this incredible compliment is knowing that our success is built on helping Canadian libraries grow and advance in rapidly changing times.
