It is one of the largest public libraries in the Edmonton. There are a lot of activities going on most of the time. However, during the winter a lot of homeless people come to the library to run away from the harsh cold weather outside which you cannot blame them for it. Just make sure to not stare at them....

Winner of best library in North America last year. I love the central library, with its brutalist 1960s modern architecture, furniture and spaces. Check out when free films are shown, visit the computer "maker space", apply for a temporary password for the internet (or just log into the free wifi on your phone). November 18-20 is the "Books to Buy"... More

I always go there to borrow books and DVDs. Selection is broad and there so many to choose. They also have rare DVDs that you only could watch at Metro or Princess Theatre. If you don't have fancy cable/satelite or Netflex, this is the place that you can find your entertainment. As someone mentioned, this location will be closed for... More

The entire library is very modern, and really encourages new thoughts and ideas. It has a recording studio, as well as a 3D printer and many other innovations that not many people can get easy access to. Would recommend this place for people of all ages!

The Heritage Room in this library is amazing. There are numerous books about the history of various places in Alberta, as well as genealogical resources and records. I found a book on the history of the Misericordia Hospital and another one about the ship my father's family came to Canada on back in the 1920s. While you can't remove books... More
