Letters for Lethbridge

Libraries are all about stories - but we're also about community!

As part of our 100th anniversary celebrations we are collecting YOUR stories about Lethbridge. We want to capture the experience of living in Lethbridge up to and including the year 2019 to create our version of a time capsule.

The stories will be gathered and reviewed by a team of story experts - including our Writer in Residence - and up to 100 will be chosen to be included in a bound copy of Letters for Lethbridge to be made available on the shelves of the Lethbridge Public Library.

To learn more about Letters for Lethbridge download our brochure and check out our writing resources.

Our writing resources list is also available online via our catalogue.

When you're ready to submit, download our Story Submission Form (please use Google Chrome). Stories will be accepted up to December 1, 2019.
