In a day and age where we rely heavily on the internet for research, etc. it is nice to have a facility such as the Fernie Library to offset our computer craziness. The library is always renewing their inventory and keeping relevant. The library is also keeping current by offering all sorts of sessions and programs with authors and child/teenager... More

They also recommended we use the computer resources to access... More

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.

They have a nice selection of current titles as well as the classics. This month they are also offering a large selection of books for sale at reasonable prices. I picked up a few bargains. They have dvds as well and if they don't have it in you can reserve it. We ordered a few titles from other branches and... More
