Really friendly staff. Lovely building that has a really nice atmosphere. A large selection of books for a smaller town. They have cheap printing and computers available but scanning will cost you $1 a page.

The library also has an excellent children's programme & a series of visiting author's talks. As well as other special events. If you are just visiting check the... More

The staff are very helpful and friendly and the building offers a glimpse of the Fernie history. It offers internet access and photocopying for a small fee. Great selection of books and some movie rentals.
