Library will be closed to public

Effective December 13, 2020, libraries are mandated to be closed to the public by the Government of Alberta. Although we cannot welcome you into the library at this time, we are happy to bring the library outside to you through a curbside pickup service. Craft Kits will also be able to be picked up using this service as well.
