No Fee for Lethbridge Public Library Memberships Continues in 2023

The Lethbridge Public Library is excited to announce that we will continue to offer Library memberships at no fee throughout 2023.
 
The City of Lethbridge Library Board approved the elimination of membership fees for another year based on the ongoing needs of our community.

“Our Board sees the value in working to establish access for all to the Library, and its resources and materials. Membership fees provide a significant barrier to many, and eliminating fees ensures that all residents are able to access the Library’s physical and virtual services equally. The Library is a welcoming, inclusive space that works to connect and strengthen our community through equitable access to learning and leisure – be that in person or online – and this opportunity only reinforces that,” says Craig Brown, Chair, City of Lethbridge Library Board.
