Our new library is the product of a community that values learning and that works together to acheive mutual goals. The library is bright and offers various programming for all ages. The furnishings offer a queit place to relax with a good book in comfort or to access a computer to learn even more. Great staff!

“Nice new library and technology centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

The building is really beautiful. There are rooms for small meetings or studying, a bigger conference room with smartboard, a computer lab, an accessiblity area of computers, a children's dept, teen dept and adult dept. My only complaint is that the children's dept does not seem much larger than at the old library. In fact the "play" or "mat" area is smaller. It is already feeling crowded and not much room to expand. I know the point of a library is for books and not necessarily toys, but since there is not much else in Fort Frances in way of a meeting area for parents of young children, the library has always been a hub and it would have been nice to see a larger area set aside. Some community libraries that I have been to have huge carpeted areas, with lots of seating for adults (couches, beanbag chairs), a private nursing room (or cry room), a separate room for crafts (which often go along with storytime programs) and many more interactive stations (puzzles, toys, manipulatives). However, overall, the new library is beautiful - fireplace lounge, nice seating areas in the adult area.

“New Library Worth Seeing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

The Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre is a masterpiece. Set in a lovely small town, near Rainy Lake and offering all the new technology and services of a larger centre. The citizens of Fort Frances did themselves proud with their fund raising efforts to build a facilty of the 21st Century!

“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2011

Very Good Library. It's located right beside a big sports centre and a beautiful park. The library is one of the biggest that I've seen. It's newly built. The library inside is stunning and the staff are very friendly. I've never borrowed books from there but on my trip I really enjoyed coming to the library to read a book and unwind.
