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. The survey ends on March 15, 2021.
We have a weekly delivery service available on Fridays. You can place holds on the items you would like or phone us and we can place holds for you. When you receive notification that your holds have arrived here, (showing HELD status), just give us a call us at (403) 272-9025 and we can book a delivery for you.
Storytimes are online. Watch for stories and more on our Facebook page and our website.

Online Novel Book Club – April 1, 2021 meeting will be at 7:00 pm
The next title for discussion is: Let’s Pretend this Never Happened by Jenny Lawson. We will have copies available here at the Library for pick up. Below is a brief synopsis.
“This book is a love letter to my family. It’s about the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments—the ones we want to pretend never happened—are the very same moments that make us who we are today. I’ve reserved the very best stories of my life for this book…to celebrate the strange, and to give thanks for the bizarre. Because you are defined not by life’s imperfect moments, but by your reaction to them. And because there is joy in embracing—rather than running screaming from—the utter absurdity of life. I thank my family for teaching me that lesson. In spades.”
