Read The World

Can't travel in real life?
Travel with books!

We challenge you to read a book written by an author from each continent in 2021, and explore the globe from the comfort of home. Track your reading with our special passport, and watch this site (and our Instagram!) for special bonus challenges.  

Anyone in grades 7-12 with an LPL or Chinook Arch membership can take part. 

Here are some booklists to get you started!

Teens who take part will be eligible for special themed prizes!  When you're finished with your passport, you can fill out this form to share the challenges you completed.

Download your passport below, and start reading!
(tip: if you're printing it out, choose the "booklet" setting)


Join the Teen Advisory Group!

TAG meets once a month with the Teenbrarian.  Together, they talk about teen programs and collections, and how to make the library better for youth.  

Volunteering with TAG is a great way to build leadership skills and contribute to the community.  Anyone in grades 7-12 can be a member of TAG.

Meetings are the first Tuesday of every month, and will be run via Discord.

Need a library card?

Get a library card!

If you are between the ages of 13-17, and want to get a free teen library membership so you can check out some sweet books and movies, just call 403-380-7330 (Main Branch) or 403-320-4037 (Crossings Branch)! You don't need an adult's permission to set up a card; as a teen, you're responsible for your own membership.

You can also drop by either branch or the Bookmobile and set up a membership in person.

If you need to renew your YA card, the process is the same!  

Happy borrowing!
