Welcome to the Fernie Heritage Library, a relaxing space to spend some leisure time.
Located in the original Post Office building, the Fernie Heritage Library is a monument to Fernie community spirit and was one of the only structures spared in the fire of 1908. About 90 years after its original construction, the Post Office building would undergo an extensive renovation and become the Fernie Heritage Library. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and uncounted hours of volunteer labour turned a worthy but tired city property into a legacy for future generations.
Holiday Hours: The Library is closed December 23-26th, and December 30 - January 1st, 2019.
Programs and activities
The library offers a variety of programs for kids, and is also the host location for the Booked! event series featuring receptions with prominent Canadian authors.
Fernie Heritage Library carries a range of fiction and non-fiction books, along with magazines, CDs, audio cassettes, talking books, videos, and DVDs. A wide selection of both junior fiction & non-fiction is available for younger readers. In the Canadian Pacific Reference Room, a range of items such as encyclopedias can be perused (but must remain within the library.)
