This library shows everything that is good about small town libraries. Great community atmosphere. Lots of activities, and a very carefully and well chosen collection. A real pleasure.

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

In a day and age where people have a tendency to check out their iPad or go to a big box store for good reads this is a great alternative. There are ample children's selections, tons of research books and a good selection of every genre for adults. In addition, the staff are very generous with their time and will... More

We went to the library to do some family tree research and the staff were really helpful. Turned out they had a book of old houses in the area which they were kind enough to sieve through for us but unfortunately the house we were looking for wasn't in there. 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.
