Indie-Lethbridge 2019

One hundred years, one hundred stories. As part of the library's centennial celebration next year, we are currently seeking submissions for Indie-Lethbridge 2019. This second year collection will be composed of stories written by Southern Alberta authors, or set in the same area. 

We are pleased to announce the library will now be accepting children's materials and music albums as part of this collection. Anyone interested in making a submission can fill out the form below and either email the form to or return it to any library service counter.

Social Story

 The Lethbridge Public Library has created a social story about visiting the library! A social story is a narrative from the child's perspective that can be a tool and provide comfort for children in everyday situations. Check out our free and printable PDF version that you can print out before visiting the library!
