We are not only about books - but, wow - we do books well!
In 2019, the Rimbey Library circulated 32,317 items. Our physical collection consists of 20,765 items.
Not all of our circulation statistics come from traditional paper books. We loan out movies, e-books, and audio books as well. We strive to break down as many barriers as possible.
This is how we are able to provide services to everyone.
Free Library Cards
Regardless of income, everyone has equal access to library materials.
We have books in languages other than English available, and if it's not on our shelf we can access it from our library partners across Alberta.
We have a collection of large print books, a vast amount of print disabled books (and the readers with which to play them), as well as multiple Braille books, and audio books. Whatever your format needs, we are able to help!
It's not just physical books any more. More and more, people are using the internet to gather information. Multiple databases are available to members of the library, such as Solaro (homework help), Ancestry.ca, PressReader, Ebooks, Eaudio Books, Niche Academy (instructional videos on how to use online services) and more!
