As a member library of the Shortgrass Library System, our patrons have access to not only our collection of over 20,000 items but also hundreds of thousands of physical items and digital content from other member libraries. We also have access to items across Alberta using The Alberta Library system.

We are also a member of CELA (Centre for Equitable Library Access) and NNELS (National Network for Equitable Library Service) and offer resources for print-disabled users. This includes the use of our Daisy Reader and a large selection of Daisy Reader books.
Our Programs How We Do It
We have a variety of family programming to serve all ages.
Our LEGO @ the Library runs every Saturday from 10:00 am - 12:00 Noon, beginning on the first Saturday of October and ending the last Saturday in April. Parents and caregivers attend with their children ages 5-12 for free play with LEGO kits and bulk pieces as well.
Shake, Rattle, & Read is our toddler story time. This is for children ages 0-4yrs and their parents or caregivers. We have rhymes, stories and free play with toys, The children have great fun playing dress-up, playdough, 'cooking', and playing musical instruments. All play time is geared to letting children use their imaginations instead of electronics. This program is free of charge.
We also have our Summer Reading Program for children ages 5-12. This program runs July & August and is so much more than just reading. The children spend two hours each day Mon-Thurs, playing games, crafts, science experiments, guest speakers, and of course, reading challenges! This is a fun way to keep your child's reading level up over the summer months and also a great way to meet new friends. There is a small fee for this program, please call 403-548-3335 to inquire.
There is also a variety of free adult programming throughout the year. We hold information sessions with community member guest speakers on RRSPs, home buying, Law at Lunch sessions via videoconferencing, and ereader training sessions.
