The Radium Hot Springs Public Library is open to the public! We are currently offering in-person browsing, computer access, printing services, and online and grab & go programs. We are still operating with reduced hours, and to adhere to provincial regulations, we have set occupancy limits, and masks are mandatory indoors. We are also offering curbside pickup services for books and printing. If we do not have the book you want, we can order it through our provincial interlibrary loan system!

 While we are unable to offer in-person programming at this time, we do have some fun online events and activities coming up!

  Grab & go activities for kids and families:

 Easter Craft – Available for pickup Saturday, April 3, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

 Spring Craft – Available for pickup Saturday, April 17, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. (While supplies last)

 We also have a fun Spring Fundraiser, Come Grow with Us!, happening right now! Our volunteers have put together a fun family-friendly spring activity available for $10 at the library in lieu of our regular in-person fundraisers. The kit contains a plant pot, soil, and a sunflower seed.

 We are grateful to our wonderful community for your support and understanding during these unusual times! We will continue to adapt our services as things change. We are hopeful for better and brighter days ahead!
