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.
