Library Giving Day

Support YOUR Lethbridge Public Library on Library Giving Day! On April 4, make your donation to Lethbridge Public Library and help us add to the services and resources we offer our community. (Or you can donate early, we won't mind.)

You can also support your Lethbridge Public Library by visiting Cupper's Coffee & Tea and purchasing a bag of our Reader's Roast coffee. With notes of bakers chocolate and caramel it gives you more energy for JUST another chapter.

See full information on Library Giving Day by clicking on the Public Service Announcement below. 


Library Closed

The Lethbridge Public Library will be closed on Friday, April 7 and Monday, April 10. 


Crossings Branch Expansion and Enhancement Project

Aimed at meeting the library service needs of the community now, and into the future, the Crossings Branch Expansion and Enhancement Project plans to expand the current Crossings Branch into approximately 2,500 square feet of unused space adjacent to the current facility.

Crossings Escape Rooms

Please note: originally in the Happening, it was advertised that we would be running fairytale escape rooms in April. However, due to continued demand for our Pokemon escape room, we will instead be opening more slots for the Pokemon Escape Room. Our fairytale escape rooms-A Tale so Grimm and Into the Everwoods-will be running at a later date.

The Pokemon Escape room is now full.

Our next escape room will be Star Wars, which will run in May, with our fairytale rooms running later in the year.

To be notified when the other escape rooms will run, please join our mailing list HERE.
