No Fee for Lethbridge Public Library Memberships Continues in 2022

The Lethbridge Public Library is excited to announce that we will continue to offer Library memberships at no fee throughout 2022.
 
The City of Lethbridge Library Board approved the elimination of membership fees for another year based on the ongoing needs of our community and as part of its efforts to assist our community as we all work to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“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. And now, more than ever, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, our community needs access to the Library. 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 and acts to help our community recover as we work through the effects that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our community,” says Craig Brown, Chair, City of Lethbridge Library Board.
