    Strategic Plan Survey

    Chestermere Public Library wants to give you the best possible library service.  We are conducting a survey to identify your library needs. This helps prioritize our goals. The survey link is available on our website and Facebook. We also have paper copies available for pick up. Call us at (403) 272-9025.

    We are here to help. Here are some services we have available for you:

    Curbside Service is continuing during our hours of operation.  Drop by or for a speedier transaction, call ahead of time for an appointment.  Please call us from your vehicle when you arrive.

    Library2You:  Weekly delivery service is now available on Fridays.  We know that it is difficult for some of you to get to the Library to pick up your items.  Now, when you have something on hold, you can give us a call and schedule a delivery right to your door.  Not sure how to put an item on hold? Just give us a call and we can place your holds for you.

    Storytimes are online. Watch for stories and more on our Facebook page and our website.

    Online Novel Book Club – March 4, 2021 meeting will be at 7:00 pm

    “Soon after her twenty-fifth birthday, Libby Jones returns home from work to find the letter she’s been waiting for her entire life. She rips it open with one driving thought: I am finally going to know who I am.”
