Since 1955, Forestburg Public Library has been serving the residents of Forestburg and area. It is part of the Parkland Regional Library system. Membership to the library is free and brings you access to nearly 10,000 items locally – books, audiobooks, DVDs, Blu-rays and CDs. With your card, you can use databases hosted on the Parkland Regional Library website, from Canadian Points of View to current newspapers and magazines. Or maybe learn a new language with Mango?

And if you can't find what you want at our library -- request materials online through interlibrary loan. And with the new ME card,  you can go into Alberta libraries outside of the Parkland area and borrow materials directly (you just need to register your card for the library systems you want to use). Materials borrowed can be returned to any library you wish.

Don't do much with paper these days? You can borrow eBooks and eAudio through EBSCO and 3M Cloud Library, watch movies with Hoopla and read magazines with Zinio. For details, check our website.

The library also offers home delivery in-town to housebound patrons. We have free internet access (4 stations). Free Wi-Fi may also be accessed anywhere inside or near the library.

For those with a visual or print disability, we offer Large Print books, audio books, Daisy readers for loan and access to the CNIB Library.

A variety of programs for kids and adults are offered throughout the year. Check the website for more info.

Gardening Series:
April 9, 2018 at 7pm at the Forestburg Library

Finding Common Ground is a new documentary about a three day bike trip in the Battle River region. In September 2017, 25 cyclists and community members traveled through Camrose, Forestburg, Halkirk and Hardisty to learn about and discuss energy options and opportunities.  The film is 25 minutes, and there will also be time for questions and discussion. Hosted by the Battle River Watershed Alliance, the film is meant to start conversations about building energy and community resilience in our changing climate.  

May 14, 2018 at 7 pm at Forestburg Library

Growing lilies made easy.  Come join Dr. Ieuan Evans, a lily breeder, for an inspirational talk (as an aside Dr. Evans won the North American Champion Lily 2017).  Bring your questions about any gardening topic and you will get an answer.  He has also promised to bring ‘door prizes’ and samples to share from his extensive and unique collection of plant material. This is a session you will not want to miss!


The Friends of the Library supports the library by promoting the library and conducting fundraising projects.
