Town of Fort Macleod Library

The goal of the library is to reach as many community and rural families as possible and to communicate appreciation for learning through material and the cultural diversity of our area. To teach the members of our community the open access we provide and of all resources available and that learning is a lifelong pleasure and experience.

It is the library’s vision to be an all-inclusive and safe, social, cultural, learning and information centre.

The Fort Macleod Library works to provide a wide variety of library materials and services to meet the community needs with information, education, recreation and culture for all segments of our community.

The Fort Macleod Library serves the Town of Fort Macleod, the M.D. of Willow Creek, the Blood Tribe and the Piikani Nation, as well as surrounding Hutterite colonies.

The Fort Macleod Library is governed by a volunteer board consisting of 10 members (which includes one councillor from the Town of Fort Macleod and one councillor from the MD of Willow Creek).
