The Delburne Municipal Library is a proud member of the Parkland Regional Library system, a cooperative of 50 public libraries across central Alberta. With your library membership, you are a member of 50 other unique libraries and have access to their services too!
Our Mission is to enrich the lives of all the members of the community by providing books, audio tapes, CD's, magazines and internet service as a means of stimulating the appreciation of learning. Our Library Manager is Judy Nicklom.
We are governed by appointed trustees from the Municipality of Delburne. The Delburne Municipal Library Board meets on the second Thursday of the month from September to June. The current Delburne Municipal Library Board Chair is Lorna Goddard and the Friends of the Delburne Municipal Library Society Chair is Peter Wagstaff.
New books are added all the time but we offer more than just books! The Delburne Municpal Library has a computer lab, microscopes, a telescope rental, dvd rentals, and copying services. Check out the information below for our services and new items at the library!
What is New!
Here are some of the things you can do at the library...
The library is superpowered by Alberta Supernet. The speed is literally awesome. Use it on our public access computers or your own device and avoid a “high-speed” headache.
The Delburne Municipal Library provides unfiltered public access to the internet. Library staff do NOT monitor what children are accessing on the internet. Parents/guardians are responsible for supervising their children's access to all library resources including the internet.
Please read our Internet Access and Use Policy
Alberta Wide Borrowing (ME Libraries)
Library members can register with non-Parkland public libraries across the province to easily borrow physical items (not eContent) using their Parkland Regional Library card. Borrowed materials can be returned to any public library, too. All this for free!
Borrow print and audio books, movies, music CDs, game discs and even journal and newspaper articles from libraries across the province. Request online using your Parkland Regional Library card number and PIN or ask library staff to find / request items for you. We will look far and wide – beyond Alberta and even internationally – to track down specific items and contact you when your item arrives so you can pick it up.
Borrow Books by Mail
Did you know we have a direct mail service? If you live remotely, are homebound, or have mobility issues you can request library materials be delivered to your mailbox by Canada Post.
Talk to your local library to find out more about this free service!
Photocopying / Printing
The library can satisfy your need for black and white copying/printing for $0.25 per page. Colour copies may also be available at an additional charge. Just ask us!
Reading Suggestions and Research Help
Looking for your next enthralling read or video content on a theme? Library staff can match you to the perfect book, movie, documentary, or audiobook.
We can also help you find information on any topic imaginable from family history research to raising chickens in your backyard.
Alternate Formats for Print Disabilities
Albertans unable to use conventional print materials due to a print disability (visual, physical or cognitive) have a number of options to access materials in alternate formats. Our library can provide access to large print books, audio books on discs or in digital format (direct to device or computer), braille books, described video and equipment (i.e. DAISY readers). We can also help you register for services through the National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS) or the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA).
Tools & Equipment
Parkland Regional libraries lend many non-book materials such as eReaders, pedometers, radon screening kits, power monitors, DAISY book readers, projectors and screens, seeds, and even tools. Ask staff about all the exciting things you can borrow from us!
