Library Closure

In alignment with AHS recommendations, Big Valley Library is CLOSED until further notice to help combat the spread of COVID-19. 

If you have materials on loan, please keep them until we re-open. If you need to return them to the library please call ahead and let us know during library hours. Overdue fines will not be charged.

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

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
