Since the days of Florence Johnston, the first librarian who worked so hard to bring the wonderful world of books to the people of the area, to the splendid facility we have today, The North-West Regional Library has provided an environment where residents can peruse hundreds of books and access other amenities, all the while enjoying a serene atmosphere, perhaps from one of the comfortable corners that have been artfully designed to encourage a reader “to stay a while”.

New programs are continually being incorporated to meet technical, educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs. Children’s programs have always been a priority, and now, with financial support from the Community Foundation of Swan Valley, a new computer workstation will be purchased benefiting the youngsters, parents and caregivers. The Foundation is pleased to have had a role in making the Children’s Technology Area a reality.
