We are open!

Big Valley Library is open, with our regular hours: Tuesday to Thursday from 10 AM to 1 PM / 3 PM to 6 PM & Friday 10 AM to 1 PM.

We are offering services to those most at risk on Tuesday mornings from 10 -11 AM. 


Because of the size of our library we are limiting the number of people at one time to 5. We have three computer stations available. All services are available and Curbside services will continue to be offered for those who prefer it.

We are available via phone (403-876-2642) or email to help you sign up for a library card and access eResources. Checked out items can be renewed online by logging into your account using your library card barcode and pin.
