Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year! For 2022 we want to introduce you to our new online catalogue (there may still be the odd glitch, but it looks amazing) and a new digital magazine collection with Libby (we are saying goodbye to Flipster). Hoopla is also getting some upgrades with Hoopla Binge Pass.

We will be CLOSED for the following days

Holman Complex. You can browse, use a computer and pick-up your items. Please follow the signage at your branch, wear a mask, sanitize your hands and stay home if you are feeling any symptoms.

Honouring September 30

At the library this September 30th 2021, the first ever National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we will be honouring the lives of children lost, the Survivors, and those families and communities affected by the residential school system.

Show your heart and take time to reflect by adding your thoughts to the orange hearts available at all branches.

Learn more about the residential school system and the journey of reconciliation; check out our adult and children’s books, films, reports, and The Calls to Action handout for kids.

There are many online resources to connect with, including free recordings all week from the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, the Orange Shirt Day events, and the University of Alberta’s online learning course Indigenous Canada.
