We're open!

As of July 7th, 2020 the Hardisty Library is open to the public.

Due to Covid 19, social distancing ans Alberta Health Services rules will be implemented.

Only 3 Patrons allowed in the Library at one time. At this stage, we are requesting no children under the age of 14 years of age be allowed to enter.

We ask that parents/ guardians feel free to acquire material material for their children. Only 2 computers will be open for adult use; in 1 hour intervals. Proper PPE will be used by staff.
