We are open!

We have new, temporary hours in place, and new guidelines to safely welcome you back, so you will notice some changes when you visit the library.


You can access our digital resources with your library card by visiting our eLibrary. Stay up to date on services and online programs being offered by viewing our Facebook page and Blog

Curbside Pickup is available for all our operating hours. Please call the library (780-672-4214) to arrange for pickup. When you arrive please park along the east side of the library, beside the blue shed and then give us a call to let us know you are here.

Borrowing and Returns:
  • Please feel free to return your items through the outdoor book drop at any time.
  • If you feel sick, please stay home and keep your books, and call us to extend your due date. 
  • We are encouraging a curbside-pickup service. Request your materials in advance either by placing holds or calling ahead, and staff will retrieve them for you. If you place a hold on an item, please wait for notification from us that your item is available for pick-up before coming to pick them up. If you prefer to stay outside the building when you pick up your items, please come to the side entrance door (by the blue bike shed), ring the doorbell and stand a safe distance away, and a staff member will be with you shortly to fill your order.
Facilities:
  • Number of patrons in the building will be limited. For the time being, only 15 patrons will be allowed on each floor at one time.
