How Cool is our Bookmobile?


Congratulations to our Library staff and our Bookmobile, who won the Grand Prize in the 2012 Chamber of Commerce Canada Day Parade! Click the photo to see it larger!

Cool enough that it gained the attention of the Shanachietour, a group of innovative guys from the DOK public library in Delft, the Netherlands. They were so impressed with our "Mobile Library" that they filmed it as part of their Wild Rose tour of Alberta libraries. They loved the wheelchair accessibility, the space inside and the size of the collection, calling it a "best practice for sure" of how a library can serve its community.


"The new Bookmobile arrives and what a beauty it is. We have never seen the likes of this..."
